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 2019.

I would love to know more about 20-30% placebo success rate in treating cancer patients. Could the author please point me in the right direction? A reference would be highly appreciated. Thank you! — Unsigned, by: 18.104.22.168 / talk / contribs 2011-12-21T23:40:37
- That reference doesn't actually say what the sentence says it does. It's effective in treating symptoms, but doesn't really give generic figures. narchist 13:09, 18 April 2013 (UTC)
It was through discovering that a friend of mine had ambitions to become a Theta Healing practitioner, then researching TH myself, and attending a TH suck-in-more-punters session in Neil's Yard, Covent Garden, London, UK, that I gained some insight into just how a broken or dysfunctional Bullshit Detector (as psychological mechanism) can leave a person acutely vulnerable to health fraud scams. As a well-educated autodidact, I found it really easy to uncover that TH is pseudo-scientific AND theistic Bullshit, designed to financially enrich the cynical, manipulative founder and her family by relieving science-ignorant, religiosity-degraded, more-money-than-sense Americans of as much of their money as possible. But gullibility is a human universal - my friend's Swedish, and got TH-infected in the UK - so TH is now scamming science-ignorant, religiosity-degraded, more-money-than-sense folk from developed economies in Europe and elsewhere. So thank you for hosting and posting a TH page here - maybe it'll raise a red flag in the minds of potential TH customers, sufficient to prevent them being ripped off by this thoroughly obnoxious organised health fraud scam. ~ Tim Dalinian Jones, Fri 11 Jan 2013 — Unsigned, by: 22.214.171.124 / talk / contribs 2013-01-11T08:09:44
How ThetaHealing helps
ThetaHealing takes us into the theta brain wave state, in a few seconds, and in a coscious state. In that state, it is easy to access the sub-conscious mind, and growth hormone is also released. The God energy accessed in this state is simply the universal energy. Matter is made from energy. Everything is energy. When energy divides, the new energies are connected, according to Quantum Entanglement. Therefore, everything is connected, as it has all come from 1 Source Energy. ThetaHealing teaches our mind to feel connected.— Unsigned, by: Serectrus / talk / contribs 04:31, 6 September 2013 (UTC)
