RationalWiki's 2020 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 who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

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

Donations so far: $2120Goal: $3500

Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.

But, if we throw out the baby Jesus with the bathwater, what do we have left?
—Elizabeth Border. "The Divided Kingdom"
Christianity has died in the hands of Evangelicals. Evangelicalism ceased being a religious faith tradition following Jesus’ teachings concerning justice for the betterment of humanity when it made a Faustian bargain for the sake of political influence.
—Miguel de la Torre, The death of Christianity in the U.S. baptistnews.com, 13 November 2017.
It would be easy to answer by slinging epithets back at our critics and calling them fools and imbeciles incapable of logical reasoning, unwilling to be convinced and crawling into a corner they are presented with arguments which they are unable to answer, when they are shown proofs which they are unable to refute. But calling names, while a great personal satisfaction and an excellent safety valve once in a while, is no argument.
—William J. Robinson, Birth control, or the limitation of offspring, Eugenics Publishing Co., Inc., New York, 1936.
...when Sessions told the President that a Special Counsel had been appointed, the President slumped back in his chair and said, "Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my Presidency. I'm fucked."
—The Mueller Report, Volume II, page 78.
It is required that we must constantly monitor our on-air conversations for opsec transgressions including ill-advised organizational names or relationships.

BrainMop.png As a confirmed mustard jar for taking on this job as a Sysop on RationalWiki: I, Cosmikdebris, pledge to only block users if they ask for it, or insert unfunny vandalism.
I furthermore pledge that if I indulge in secret private conversations about you, we will make a formal report to the mob. Is that all?
If you impugn my motives without warrant, or challenge my "AUTHORITY", er, there is nothing I can or will do.
