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 !
Greetings, Rational Wiki Fans!
I joined Rational Wiki on April 4, 2018.
I've been using English Wikipedia as my main online source for general information for several years now. About a year ago I decided that reading Russian Wikipedia articles on topics that I already knew about would be a good way to improve my vocabulary and reading skills. After being interested in Thailand last year, I began to read articles on Thai Wikipedia instead.
I wanted to tell my Thai students that there is more to do on the internet than just play games and chat. I told them about Rational Wiki, a site where you could learn about almost any topic. However, I knew that the English would be too difficult for them.
I think Rational Wiki is an excellent idea. It is so discouraging to try to read in a foreign language if the vocabulary of the text is too difficult. I hope that Rational Wiki will be useful to my students and to all other English learners.
Knowledge should be easy to get.
