RationalWiki's 2018 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 seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

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

It is not a conspiracy theory, the Catholic Church and the King of France conspired to eliminate them. Talsley (talk) 18:05, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

Actual "Heresy"[edit]

Should we mention the truth of the allegations against the Knights Templar?

The allegations of sodomy, defilement and apostasy were certainly accurate to some extent - but only as a psychological training exercise. The then-grand-master (I forget his name)was actually discussing reform with the Pope, but because of extraordinary powers given the French Inquisition (and never retracted), by the time this could be done, too many knights Templar had been executed.

Does anyone actually believe they still exist? Knowing some idiots, probably, but I don't know for sure.--Tsunadi (talk) 12:13, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
