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.

That is a Great Site!!! Only three clicks and I was reading:
- I know of a case where a reptilian had sexually assaulted a female milab and thus activated the kundalini energy of the woman. No sooner had the reptilian left than the military instantaneously brought the woman via some hi-tech means, to their underground installation. The military controllers then tasked the female milab with an astral op. Responding to the suggestions and encouragement of her controllers, the milab (perhaps with the help of the aforementioned technology) sent her astral body to the Persian Gulf region to observe several people who had gathered together at a private meeting. She then verbally reported her perceptions to her controllers....... In this incident the military had either colluded with the reptilian or became aware of the reptilian’s appearance in the woman’s bedroom. The military has sensors that indicate when an electromagnetic disturbance or event has occurred that is indicative of a reptilian manifestation.

What is a milab?
You know what's interesting? This website gets mentioned (briefly) in the book "Your Baby's Best Shot" on page 133. This includes the statement that Scudamore is a pig farmer. Jinx (talk) 18:45, 21 February 2013 (UTC)
It doesn't make a lot of sense to have an article about the law, which could never run more than a few sentences on its own anyway, and then have a subsection about the site it describes, so I went ahead and switched them. Wehpudicabok (talk) 09:18, 14 April 2013 (UTC)
Where's a reference for Scudamore being a pig farmer?
(Just because I'd like it to be true doesn't mean it is ... otherwise this would just be a pale imitation of whale.to ;-))
More importantly, who says pig farmers *can't* become knowledgeable and scientific? I'm not defending Scudamore, but you seem to have an anti-pigfarmer bias. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 20:06, 16 April 2016 (UTC)
Is anyone familiar with www.ancient-origins.net? Where would it fall with regards to this list? Someone shared an article from that site with me, and the article read fine, but the ads, images, motto, and other things just seem off.
After reading their about page, I can't decide if they're unconvinced, open minded skeptics, or if they're very self-aware woo peddlers. Anyone on this site in the know? --184.108.40.206 (talk) 05:29, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
- Scopie's law is not intended to be a proper logical argument. It's satire. Frederick♠♣♥♦ 00:43, 29 March 2015 (UTC)
- Should we have some sort of disclaimer for inductive versus deductive rules? That is, things like Scopie's Law are inductive; the source is known for bullshit, so the argument is almost certainly bullshit, and since we have limited resources/time, ignore the stuff that is obviously bullshit even if there is that 1 in a billion chance it's not.
