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.
| Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.|
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with !
I'm just a former catholic, transformed by the strong, musky power of true knowledge into a proud atheist.
I'm a software engineer by birth, but I actually have a severe thirst for knowledge and science, a hobby I maintain by reading a lot of stuff, especially in geology and astronomy. However, I'm no scientist by any means, and any understanding I may have, while better than your average Joe, is still amateurish.
Anyway, maybe I'm sort of naive, but I still find myself in quite a shock at the sort of madness that religious fundamentalists believe, especially the kind embodied by the most advanced scientific society of the 15th century, Conservapedia. Literally, I cannot comprehend how the believe the shit they do.
So, after probably a year or so of lurking, I decided to create my account... just so I can comment on the various topics being discussed here, and to support this project, which I think is extremely valuable to society.
