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 !
Some day this may be a glorious shrine of coloured tables and exciting yet humorous images. Until then here are some details about the man behind the three-letter-nickname.

I'm interested in food woo and food articles because of my lifestyle as a foodie (by marriage) and as a scientist and medical professional.
I'm also interested in alternative medicine and medical woo: know thy enemy. And I seem to be getting involved in a lot of molecular and cellular biology, which is odd since I haven't done that stuff in a couple years now.
Atheism and religion are interesting reads but I try to avoid edits, because I get too irritable.
Most recent wtf
I acutely noticed the other day that there are plenty of progressive, left-wing satirists, but I can't think of a real right-wing satirist. Why are they all so earnest and angry? Satire isn't inherently left-wing, or shouldn't be. I bet it's even a Conservative Word.
- Unformed offspring tentatively nicknamed "Stormageddon". Nickname not expected to stick past ejection phase of parasite.
