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: $3500Goal: $3500

Articles about living people must be handled carefully, because they are more open to legal threats.
Reference any contentious allegations solidly; unreferenced allegations should be removed.

Not active in research....[edit]

According to the cited arXiv search, Kaku's publications since the early 1990's consist only of textbooks (which, by the way, are hastily written and derivative), popular writings, and three technical papers which have had no impact, being cited a total of six times.

You need to look in more than one place. (talk) 02:52, 27 June 2016 (UTC)

One thing I know....[edit]

...is that if I am watching any sci/tech documentary, Kaku will appear at some point. Happens all the fucking time. I stick to science lectures these days. Aceword up 03:15, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

Yup. You should avail yourself of his awful radio show sometime... http://www.wwrl1600.com/live_stream.asp at 8-11 PM EST is one way to get it. ħumanUser talk:Human 04:24, 25 November 2010 (UTC)
He's also started to appear on Fox. Kinda sad. TyrannisAn iron, yet caring fist 23:13, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
Since they changed Discovery Civilization to Discovery Science, I have been pissed--Thanatos (talk) 04:21, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

Books[edit]

We should add ISBNs? ħumanUser talk:Human 02:50, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

I think most of the books listed in other articles have them so it might be a good idea. Sam Tally-ho! 02:58, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

Hyperspace[edit]

Not that bad of a book for a layman. Pretty excellent if you want to learn the basics of Quantum Psychics in a few hours. Still wondering about the veracity of a few of the claims in his book, though.--The Madman (talk) 03:44, 19 January 2014 (UTC)The Madman

Which claims would those be? - GrantC (talk) 03:49, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

Anti-nuclear fearmongering?[edit]

The Fukushima plant is not a particularly good piece of work. The spent fuel pools still leak after two years. There certainly is a psychological "impact all of humanity": even European countries are demotivated on continuing nuclear power. --Teslashark (talk) 05:54, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

Aliens[edit]

Okay I do not remember which documentary he was one when he mentioned this but I remember one time he was acting like he knew how aliens would behave and he said science fiction movies were inaccurate about alien invasions. I am no scientist but how the hell would he know how aliens would behave around us? I think there are aliens but chances are they might no have emotions or if they do then they probably would be far different from ours.--Rationalzombie94 (talk) 17:45, 4 June 2015 (UTC)

He said something about world government[edit]

And conspiracists are pissed. FuzzyCatPotato of the Uninviting Irony meters (talk/stalk) 14:50, 23 May 2016 (UTC)
