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.

We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with !
Hi. My name is Dirk Steele. I am a work of fiction. But aren't we all? We just do not recognise it yet. My character, is mostly portrayed and betrayed as a cantakerous old man addicted to a daily half bottle of cheap whisky, insulting all you 'serious' rationalists and expressing unacceptable views to the 'skeptic' society that is Rationalwiki which, by the way, is also a work of fiction. My author is a musician who goes by the name of Nick Stuart. He even has his own website at nickstuart.com and his music can be downloaded or, if you need to live in the unvirtual world, his CDs can be bought at Amazon and all good music stores - although the 'real' world of analogue vinyl is not an option at the moment. Nick Stuart plays the part of an archetypical failed musician and actor. He is a very sensitive person and lover of all things romantic. He is not a Goth though - God forbid. Of course Nick Stuart is a work of fiction also. ('I' am his author but 'I' know that 'I' am just a creation of someone else also. This person, being the bastard son of Aleister Crowley is insane but chooses to be so. It is so much more interesting than being normal. A self, as Thomas Szasz would say, is not something that is found, it is something that we create. A work of fiction). --Dirk Steele (talk) 08:09, 26 November 2012 (UTC)
