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

Wait, I thought a Morton's fork was a situation in which every possibility leads to an undesirable result (that is to say, a no-win situation). This article seems to be talking about how unfalsifiable theories are defended by their supporters no matter what. Perhaps there should be a disambiguation? --User:Brendan Rizzo, 22:00 UTC, 10 October 2013.

But surely all the tines of the fork are beneficial to the taxing authority? (And are not used against the low-wage persons actually using pitchforks.O Anna Livia (talk) 17:54, 30 July 2018 (UTC)
