RationalWiki's 2018 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 seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

It could use places for those red links in the intro to go to, they look a bit odd on my experimental front page. humanUser talk:Human 18:52, 19 January 2008 (EST)

"The cognitive revolution of the 1960's argued against the views of behaviorism, and asserted that the black box of the mind had as much, if not more, control than environmental reinforcement.[6] Most of what cognitive psychologists had to say about behaviorism was largely off the mark, and much of it was sheer politics.[citation needed]" ...??? Yes, Chomsky highlighting Skinner's definition of a stimulus as circular, and evidence in the mid 1950s showing cognitive strategies like hypothesis testing (Bartlett) and short term memory (Miller) are clearly political and defininately didn't undermine the core assumptions of RB. Oh waiiiiit. [citation needed] indeed. (talk) 10:59, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
