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.

Questioning of the definition of Pseudohistory
People have views of history that aren't accepted by mainstream history and they're not wrong and they sometimes have evidence to back them up.
As long as you have evidence to back it up. Again, with academic intolerance of those who have differing viewpoints of history. Mainstream historians aren't always right about everything, you know. And I see bias in this article against people who actually have evidence to back up their claims, that's not pseudohistory. I don't see what's going on here. This article is intolerant of people with differing viewpoints of history. Mainstream historians have been proven wrong by new evidence.

Can someone please move the "discussion" to a more suitable venue, such as RationalWiki:Forum, or at least the talk page of The United States as a Christian nation?--ZooGuard (talk) 16:00, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
There is 'creative history' (reconstructing the past as it might have been), fictional history, 'strange theories intended to start a discussion', 'misconstrued history arising from lack of knowledge' (the theory of cultural diffusion) and pseudohistory. The first three categories are legitimate, the next is 'some of our fiction now will be in the same boat' and the last is explotative/moneymaking at best and potentially actually dangerous at worst (some nationalist presentations). 126.96.36.199 (talk) 15:57, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
There is also 'my pet theory' (possibly born of knowing enough about a subject to recognise gaps, anomalies and other aspects requiring analysis) which turns out to be right or which proves productive (the discovery of Troy), and 'at least it was an interesting diversion': the original theory may be wrong or offbeat, but the proposer is willing to abide by the customary academic rules. Then there are 'my opponent Professor X's totally misguided interpretations of events...' 188.8.131.52 (talk) 22:02, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
