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.

"Reverend Lucifer" is a rational atheist with a passion for politics and taking apart religious arguments. His name is meant somewhat ironically, taking the title "Reverend" from "someone who is revered for esoteric guidance" and the moniker "Lucifer" from both the Christian mythical character who opposes God and the Roman god of enlightenment. The full intent of his pseudonym is to identify him as a person who strives to "enlighten" the religious and "oppose" religion by providing guidance, rather than what he perceives as typical of the atheist blogoshpere, which amounts to brow-beating the faithful for their alleged idiocy.
"Reverend Lucifer" is currently double-majoring in political science and psychology. His intent is to start a think tank devoted to promoting rationalism and secularism in politics, and also a super-PAC to advocate for fair and non-partisan elections as well as support pro-science (or at least scientifically accurate) legislation and fighting legislation with a religious, pseudoscientific, or woo basis
