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

I am the center of all arrogance in the universe.

I'm an ex-theistic Catholic, an amateur poet and an aspiring geologist a failed geology student. I live in the suburbs of Chicago and come from a relatively liberal Irish(Irish/German/Austrian/ect.) Catholic and very clannish family. I'm interested in history, ethnogenesis, world politics and just about anything else that will feed my ravening mind. I'm often a stickler for the rules which can make an ass out of me. Since my state of mind can be erratic my activity level on RW is likely to be erratic as well.

History of me[edit]

  • In a time now forgotten I found this wiki and began to lurk.
  • 2014 May, I created this account to reply to a comment from Burkean.
  • 2015 March, I created this User page.
  • 2015 June, I was autopatrolled by FuzzyCatPotato (think about apostolic succession).
  • 2015 October, I qualified to be an Eligible user and added myself to the Voter registration page.
  • 2015 November, I was demoted to janitor by (keep thinking about apostolic succession).
  • 2015 December, I went inactive, but don't worry i'm not dead only sleeping...

BrainMop.png As a confirmed mustard jar for taking on this job as a Sysop on RationalWiki: I, SolPyre, pledge to only block users if they ask for it, or insert unfunny vandalism.
I furthermore pledge that if I indulge in secret private conversations about you, we will make a formal report to the mob. Is that all?
If you impugn my motives without warrant, or challenge my "AUTHORITY", er, there is nothing I can or will do.
