RationalWiki's 2019 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 2020.

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: $1800Goal: $3000

My Work on RationalWiki[edit]

One of the articles I spent a lot of work on got a bronze medal. Now a silver medal.

Articles I worked on that got a bronze medal.

  • Ray Comfort. Reviewing several of his books, criticisms of evolution, and all three of the "debates" and several detailed counter arguments.
  • Discovery Institute. Follow the money and several of the senior fellows.
  • James Randi. Mainly on Sylvia Browne and Randi's stance against homeopathy.

I frequently contribute on RationalWiki:Annotated Bible.

My first and foremost notable work on RationalWiki is being a bit of a book worm. I seem to have been building a reputation as the guy who reviews tons of books. That is fine with me, as a history major I spend a great deal of time in libraries. Yes, I review books containing pseudoscience or creationism and refute the @&%$ out of them. I am also know to be passively active against Ray Comfort and Way of the Master, but I also keep an eye on other creatards (such as Lee Strobel).

You may be wondering how do I do this without shoving a sharpened pencil into my temple. True, half-way through such books and/or programs, I feel as if I am slipping into a drug-induced coma, but it is all the matter of will-power (plus it is kinda sad and says a lot about a person when they are refuted by some chap who is trying dearly to hold onto his sanity.) And you may be wondering why I do this? Several reasons, one being I love doing research. Second, read my intro above. I am a staunch defender of science and reason, and the literature I review is full of anti-matter for reason. I believe unreason and bullshit should be countered everywhere at all times, even coming from people who do not really believe it themselves. The particular books I pick out are books that I often encounter theists use as references to justify their arguments. Often it is either Ray Comfort or Lee Strobel, but there are others out there and they just do not get a free pass.

Book reviews I completed:

Book reviews near completion:

Book reviews still need work:

Book reviews in mind for the future:

  • From Darwin to Hitler by Richard Weikart. Perhaps thee Darwin = Hitler book, at least that I know of. This book has influenced many, including Ann Coulter, and has been a reference for many creationist propaganda films, such as Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed and Darwin's Deadly Legacy.
  • The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Bible by Robert J. Hutchinson. Seems like it will be a breeze.
  • Life After Death: The Evidence by Dinesh D'Souza. I have read two books recently that point out all the big flaws in this pile of garbage.
  • The Devils Delusion: Atheism and its Scientific Pretensions by David Berlinski, who is a senior member of the Discovery Institute.
  • The Truth Behind the New Atheism:‭ ‬Responding to the Emerging Challenges to God and Christianity by David Marshal.

Apart from books, I also review films. Here are films I started and worked on:

Here are films I helped expand:

  • What the Bleep Do We Know? - a film determined to connect quantum mechanics with spirituality. Spoiler: it failed. It was full of comments from people who were either unqualified or known to spread misinformation.

Future films I may plan to work on. There is no guarantee I will review them, but we will see. I am open to recommendations, but feel free to watch the films I list below:

Apart from reviewing whole films, I also review episodes; particularly Way of the Master. If you want to see my reviews and my work on Ray Comfort, search "Ray Comfort" on IronChariots.org (or click here), then scroll down to the bottom and you will see a list of episodes produced by Way of the Master. The only ones I did not do were 1) the Fire Fighter, 2) Evolution, 3) Satanic Influence, and 4) Atheism. Which means, I created and finished a total of twenty-three WOTM reviews so far. Yes, I have taken the time to refuted each of them myself. It was a lot of hard work, and there is still a lot left to go. So dear reader, if possible, please feel free to review other episodes of Way of the Master and begin a critique on IronChariots - trust me it is easier than you may think. You can use the other episodes as helping guides on how to structure the review.

Here is a list of programs I reviewed,

Here is a list of some other programs I plan to work on RW,

  • Kent Hovind's Creation Seminar: Questions and Answers

I hope you enjoy my work and find it very helpful. Also, if you have some time, some help with the above reviews (especially Way of the Master on IronChariots.org) would be much appreciated.
