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!

On our shelf:

The Orb Project is a book by Micaeal Ledwith, D.D., LL.D., and Klaus Heinemann, Ph.D. It is concerned entirely with the phenomena known as "orbs," or inexplicable glowing balls of light that magically appear any time someone uses a camera flash in dusty or rainy areas.

From the back cover:[1]

Orbs may be to the atmosphere what crop circles are to the earth. Having seen orbs and had them photographed while I am speaking, it is great to know that we are receiving cosmic energetic communication.
—C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D., Holos University Graduate Seminary President,
International Society for the Study of Subtle Energy and Energy Medicine,
author of Life beyond 100 — Secrets of the Fountain of Youth

Orbs may also be to photography what EVP is to audio recording.
