RationalWiki's 2020 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 2021.

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: $2120Goal: $3500

A nice, relaxing bath feels so good.

I'm a 50-something early retiree[1] living in the western United States. I would describe myself as some sort of quasi-beatnik hippie. I am very new to the rationalist movement and to politics in general, having abandoned politics after Reagan was elected. That all changed after an exchange with a tea party neighbor of mine, who seemed to not want the government in his life, but wanted them to burn my lesbian daughter at the stake. Pro-freedom? Yeah, right! I decided, at that point, that it was about time I re-entered the political and activism scene I abandoned long ago, and found that rationalism was my fit into the social schematics of it all.

It appears I am a more dedicated reader than editor here. But I'm still around if anybody has something they need me for.
