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 seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with !

I also wish to make it clear that I am a fan of The Amazing Atheist and Thunderf00t and am still subscribed to them. I also dont agree with their views on Gamergate and Feminism. Nevertheless I still watch them on Youtube, because at times they still can make legitimate points.
I am also currently in the research stage for writing a novel about King Henry IV of France.
I also suffer from severe anxiety about the current in North Korea.
I mostly make small edits and correct historical inaccuracies that are on articles.
I also really love the Eastern Roman Empire. You could call me a "Byzantine Atheist."
