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: $3380Goal: $3500

Talk:New gematria

Okay, WHAT?[edit]

Is it just me, or does this article read eerily similarly to Time Cube?

It almost feels like this article was written by a paranoid schizophrenic whose delusions of persecution are directed at other conspiracy theorists. Kinda like Dexter, except they wear tinfoil hats instead of killing people. — Unsigned, by: / talk

Finnegans Wake[edit]

What do the ge(rry)ma(ndering words)tria-ists make of FW or have they not come across it?

Can they be kept busy with some alphabet soup/pasta? Anna Livia (talk) 15:11, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

Laser Enhanced Nutritional Supplements[edit]

Apologies if my etiquette is wrong for placing this here instead of the Saloon, Clogosphere, New Article suggestions, or simply leaving it off RW completely. While researching for my blog I found: http://www.gematria.com/v/vspfiles/new_splash.html

Which appears to be full fledged woo that could be using the word gematria for the company name to peddle alternative medicine. It's out of place in this article and A.M. isn't my specialty, so I thought maybe somebody could find a use for this info. (And/or give me insight on etiquette for this sort of thing).— Unsigned, by: Antigem / talk / contribs

@Antigem if you think we could have an article about it, and it doesn't belong in any existing article, the proper thing to do would be to add it to RationalWIki:To do list/Suggestions. —Kazitor, pending 04:52, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

Can someone explain this page to me?[edit]

I don't understand. I know "gematria" is numerology bullshit that comes from Judaism but a lot of New Agers, occultists, etc follow. But what then is "new gematria"??? How is it different from the original? What makes it "new"? I started reading this wall of text expecting an answer to that question, I didn't get one, and then at some point I just gave up.

It looks to me that while gematria is bullshit based on a system, this is bullshit based on no system. CogitoNotStirred (via telepathy) (talk) 03:52, 4 October 2019 (UTC)
Is it important? Is it worth keeping? If it is just random bullshit which nobody pays any attention to, why not delete it? There are important loons out there – with jobs in the Trump administration, leading megachurches, spewing their hate on the airwaves to millions of eager listeners – why waste space on endless drivel about this dumb crap? Time for #REDIRECT [[Gematria]]? Droxygen (talk) 05:31, 4 October 2019 (UTC)
