Needs Citation[edit]

"RationalWiki (RW) is a community working together to explore and provide information about a range of topics centered around science, skepticism, and critical thinking."

"Rational" and "Scientific" on this site is used as double-speak. It's really just gate-keeping through ostrazisation and exclusion. It's not scientifically motivated by curiosity but politically motivated by power.

"Concepts which have proved useful for ordering things easily assume so great an authority over us, that we forget their terrestrial origin and accept them as unalterable facts. They then become labeled as 'conceptual necessities,' etc. The road of scientific progress is frequently blocked for long periods by such errors." - Albert Einstine

A paradigm-shift is going to occur in physics soon. If you snide fuckers don't start being honest with yourselves and the world you live in. You're going to encounter some bad karma. Save yourselves some grace and stop giving into ideological power-plays. You can do that, you have courage right?

"Politically motivated by power," this wiki has a slight left leaning bias in favor of socdems, it used to be hardcore liberal but thankfully those days are (mostly) over, this site is less shitty than it used to be, as for said "paradigm shift," can you elaborate on what that is?

Can this site get rid of the pretense objectivity?[edit]

At least that way it would have some integrity, rather than parading left-wing ideology around as objective truth. — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

RationalWiki:What is a RationalWiki article?. Of course, if you think our "left-wing ideology" is bad, you're always free to challenge it. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 15:50, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
@ Here's a comment with absolutely no pretense to objectivity whatsoever: you're not just a turkey, but an utter dingus as well, for missing this. Pip-pip cheerio! Reverend Black Percy (talk) 18:18, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
Just wanna say you have an outright lie on this page, you say that mediabiasfactcheck has you ranked the same as wikipedia, when in actuality the website has you rated as having a moderate liberal bias and if you look at community votes extreme left is in the lead by 40 votes. Either remove the section where you say that or edit it to reflect the truth please. Aoau (talk) 16:36, 28 September 2018 (UTC)
@Aoau What parts do you consider lies? How do they qualify as lies? How exactly does an opinion poll count as truth? Please reply so that we can try to resolve this matter. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 16:49, 28 September 2018 (UTC)

Im just a left leaning personality that fell on your alt-right page. Those comments from your integrity in 2017 : spot on. You have a strong left leaning bias on this website, it is pretty obviou and authoritarian in my honest opinion. If back in 2017 it wasn't obvious how detrimental it was for the quality of the website and its usefullness, now it is. It require a remedy for neutralisation, otherwise the name of the website stands as a joke, as it should read rationalisation wiki. — Unsigned, by: / talk

"But I thought this was supposed to be RATIONALWiki!" Drink!. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 20:45, 13 June 2019 (UTC)
Im just a left leaning personality" And then in the very next post. "american academia probably shares this kind of opinion, knowing that a bunch of radical feminists are present day managing large scale nuclear arsenals, it is chilling to see the country with this military apparatus and this intelligence apparatus turn that quickly that far to the left" As I like to say, if you're going to lie, either do it well or not at all. You suck at lying. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 20:52, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

What happened?[edit]

I haven't been here in years. When did this place get infested with SJWs and faggots? — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

I believe the SJW-faggot infestation started in 2008. Fuzzy "Cat" Potato, Jr. (talk/stalk) 16:46, 2 November 2017 (UTC)

This Wiki is anything but "Rational!"[edit]


Change your name to SJWiki[edit]

Because that's what you actually are. Your wiki has nothing to do with rationality. — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

I think you're in the wrong place. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 02:19, 30 September 2018 (UTC)
Gonna pretend to engage you. What is rationality? Conceptually, without respect to the particular things you're currently wrong and angry about what do you think defines rationality? ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 02:23, 30 September 2018 (UTC)
