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.

Info-graphics[edit]

I think we should use these info-graphics from Imgur. The current crazy-wall info-graphic is too tiny to be usable.—Hamburguesa con queso con un cara Spinning-Burger.gif (talkstalk) 05:05, 25 November 2017 (UTC)

Table inside sbs[edit]

How much longer will society ignore these inconvenient truths? When a pattern emerges, will you ignore it? Real children get abused every day, is your fear of being labeled a conspiracy theorist going to spot you from achieving justice?

If anyone know hows to put the above code into this subsection, that would be nice. And no, the {{!}} doesn't work.Hamburguesa con queso con un cara Spinning-Burger.gif (talkstalk) 06:44, 25 December 2017 (UTC)

"The Storm"[edit]

The Southern Poverty Law Center has a good write up about the continued evolution of Pizzagate into being about a counter-coup by Trump, who's been using the pseudonym "QAnon", to turn the Mueller investigation into mass arrests of "globalists" and their evil cabal (Clinton, Obama, other high-ranking Democrats) that's been stealing, raping, and eating babies to... somehow take over the world? You know how these things go. Would this need to be its own, new article or would it be added to this one? CalmlyBallistic (talk)

This looks like a candidate for a new article. Feel free to add it to RW's to do list. Regards, Cosmikdebris (talk) 17:23, 18 January 2018 (UTC)
As the "new" Pizzagate, it's definitely a standalone article with a link to this one. Leuders (talk) 17:28, 18 January 2018 (UTC)

Pizza map[edit]

Why can't anyone explain what a pizza-related map is? — Unsigned, by: 2601:584:300:FDF0:5D8E:C7AF:B811:D002 / talk

because "rational" wiki isn't about critical thought or reason, it's about deferring to centralized authority and ridiculing anyone who questions official narratives. "truth" is the legal property of the establishment hierarchy and mere peasants must bow down like good little sheep and accept what they're told. this page mainly focuses on random bits of noise while ignoring critical details such as the blatant pedo comments on Comet's IG, the Podestas' art collection depicting child abuse/torture and cannibalism, Alefantis's statement in a published interview that he stores canned tomatoes "in the basement", and the puzzling fact that GQ magazine named a pizza shop owner as one of the most powerful men in DC. but Podesta says he's innocent, and an actor fired a gun at no one, so there's clearly no need for an investigation. — Unsigned, by: 2605:a601:ab36:db00:4dff:88ab:ec93:acd / talk

Epstein photo caption[edit]

How is it antisemitic to claim that Epstein did not act alone? Are you guys serious with that photo caption? — Unsigned, by: 2605:6000:1018:c7c6:55c0:5524:51c7:810c / talk

We are serious about that. The reason that the pictured protester is antisemitic is because the sign that he is holding says, "(((Epstein))) did not act alone!…" The triple parentheses is an antisemitic dogwhistle that the alt-right uses to target Jews. It is only ever not antisemitic when a Jewish person uses it on their own name to stick to the Nazis. Bongolian (talk) 03:59, 22 February 2020 (UTC)

requesting original basement quotes[edit]

I have seen a lot of articles reporting on how QANON made reference to a basement under Comet Ping Pong so as to dispute the claim... but all I can seem to find is paraphrasing.

Would someone happen to have records of when QANON first actually mentioned a basement, and the exact dates/quotes which referred to it then and subsequently? 184.145.16.133 (talk) 05:48, 17 March 2020 (UTC)

Maybe Qanon doesn't refer to a basement specifically, but to have the conspiracy of a sex ring to work, it involves a basement for operations to work? It seems like a logical place to carry out nefrarious stuff, out of public eye, while public space can still be used as a gathering spot. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 07:28, 17 March 2020 (UTC)

A lot is missed when we don’t talk about the actual emails[edit]

Condescension? Check. Shaming? Check. I can see the golden opportunity to dunk on right-wingers with this topic, but the tone really shuts down any dissenting opinions. Coming from very far left, did anyone read these emails? It’s not just a few mentions of cheese pizza. It’s hundreds of mentions of pizza, hotdogs, walnuts, sauce. And literally none of it makes sense in full context, nor are they in conversations about food. They are code words without a shadow of a doubt. The argument should be about what. A handkerchief with a “pizza-related map” on it? “Walnut sauce?ing”? “I’m dreaming of your hotdog stand in Hawaii”? There’s been pedophilia found everywhere (religion, sports, politics several times over). Huge systemic operations that are above the law. Why would Hillary Clinton, who is close personal friends with Trump, Harvey Weinstein, Jeffrey Epstein, and other sexual predators, be exempt from that? Look into this for real, y’all. Especially if Weinstein ends up hanging himself with a paper shirt while the video footage magically disappears. PS, please rethink the part about Wikileaks being the cause of this “mess”. The world would be a much darker place without Wikileaks. Anyone who claims a Russia connection is lying to your face. — Unsigned, by: Randman21 / talk / contribs

Walnut sauce turns up in search results as a less-used Italian-style dressing. Outside of some garbage conspiracy sites with "truth" in the url. Aside from the beckoning cliché "look into this, sleepers", this ridiculous "conspiracy" has been long discredited for the nonsense it is, and I doubt the emails have anything worthwhile aside from context-erased quirky texts you call "code" that probably are way more benign and mundane than you think. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 08:23, 10 April 2020 (UTC)
@Randman21 So you believe there's a vast pedophile conspiracy but don't believe multiple powerful people met with Russian representatives to try to get inside information to win an election? Just to be clear, since the former requires more assumptions than the latter. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 12:30, 10 April 2020 (UTC)
P.S. the world would be a much better place without WikiLeaks and with a watchdog group with actual journalistic standards. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 14:40, 10 April 2020 (UTC)
P.P.S. Wikileaks did not state that there was a secret DNC pedo ring, they merely released a fuck ton of emails amongst a highly turbulent election where multiple third party sources of dubious quality released misinformation and lies. They knew this, and did not seek to make editorial notes to combat misinformation. They failed to have basic standards and were selective in their releases. These are red flags of a source suffering in terms of credibility. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 14:54, 10 April 2020 (UTC)
