RationalWiki's 2019 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 2020.

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: $1800Goal: $3000

This kind of thing[edit]

Was covered by Animal Planet once. I have no knowledge of how to find clips of it, though. Narky SawtoothNarky.png (Nyar~) 16:41, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

Oh, wait, the general gist of what I was going for: Appeal to nature may be relevant. Some animals eat clay. Narky SawtoothNarky.png (Nyar~) 16:43, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

Proposed Move[edit]

To "Geophagia." This kind of stuff is way old and widespread. This seems be a "good with some woo" sort of thing, like herbalism. Narky SawtoothNarky.png (Nyar~) 17:44, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

Or, rather, make Geophagia and merge. Narky SawtoothNarky.png (Nyar~) 17:50, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
Agree, would be best under a general Geophagia page. Bongolian (talk) 18:14, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
Go nuts! Not least because I love the label "geophagia". ScepticWombat (talk) 18:44, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
Sounds fine, just make sure that it is noted that this isn't for sustenance, or to die easier it is to lose weight, make sure that difference is made obvious Bubba41102 (talk) 19:16, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
Wait even better just a geophagia category, so any article related to eating dirt and such can just be put under that category. Bubba41102 (talk) 19:17, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
GeophagiaWiki. Mission statement: We'll make everyone eat dirt! Narky SawtoothNarky.png (Nyar~) 03:29, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
Have a mudpie! Bongolian (talk) 04:05, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
Mudpies

Differentiation[edit]

i think we should make sure taht we differentiate this from the clay section under Colonic or mabye just move that part here Bubba41102 (talk) 12:47, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

Needs more goat[edit]

I belive this page needs more goat, it is very lacking in the goat department. Bubba41102 42 is love 42 is life 19:13, 29 April 2015 (UTC)
