RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $2120Goal: $3500

Question[edit]

Would 'organic chemicals that developed in outer space transferred to Earth via comet or meteoroid combining with local chemicals (and other factors, including energy and stirring up of the locality from the impact) to form life' be considered a form of exogenesis? (It would take 'some time' for 'solar power and the relevant chemicals' to create organic chemicals, and only a fraction of coted bodies would make landfall on suitable planets with sufficient chemicals to react with.)
