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: $720Goal: $3500

Welcome with bibbangs!

My archives, represented by infinitely confusing portal icons.

Chapter 1: The first batch of messages where Mario starts with zero stars because he pissed off God. Part 2: The second horde of words too horrible to describe. Disc 3: The third batch of words that are as boring as Stilton cheese. Super Mario Bros. 4: There was a flame war and a Pianta sat on it to try to put it out.

Your resignation[edit]

Hi, LGM. I'm sorry to hear that you resigned as moderator, but I totally understand. You really did the yeo(wo)man's work as moderator, and I appreciate it. Bongolian (talk) 02:42, 3 September 2020 (UTC)

Thank you. I'm sorry you're a moderator down until November or December. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 02:49, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
Do we have any more mod alternates? And if not, should we hold the elections earlier?Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 03:19, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
You did a good job as moderator. I really don't understand all this recent turmoil. I regret your resignation.Ariel31459 (talk) 03:26, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
Ironically enough, it's RightyBlueLuigi (RationalWiki:Moderator elections/Results/Archive12), who is not related to LGM. RightyBlueLuigi has not edited since December 2019,[1] so perhaps it's moot. Bongolian (talk) 03:40, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
It's a true bummmer you've had to resign. Might you reconsider? ShabiDOO 07:59, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
You were the most active, and one of the best mods. Take the time you need, I hope you run again in November. — Dysk (contribs) 16:45, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
I'm very saddened by your resignation as well, but I can understand it. I can see how this ongoing flame war would be eating at you. I certainly couldn't handle it. But you were probably the mod who cared most about this wiki and tried to find solutions for our perennial problems. We may have disagreed occasionally on what those solutions should be, but at least you made the effort. I hope you'll consider running for the office again some day in the future. You'll definitely have my vote, just like you were my first choice to the board.Coigreach (talk) 17:07, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
Thank you for the support. You're correct that I was overwhelmed at the flame war. I regret to say I do not wish to run for moderator elections nor will I be as willing to even attend to site affairs such as policy votes and chicken coop discussion and such. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 20:40, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
You will still edit here?--HedvigsenSkreonk here 09:13, 10 September 2020 (UTC)

Jesus historicity[edit]

I didn’t mean to disparage anybody in my edit. I understand the wiki’s editorial position on Jesus, but I don’t believe the facts support what the Wiki says regarding historical events that are pertinent to the Bible, and it isn’t consistent with common historical consensus. There are logical fallacies that I hope to address on other pages if you’ll give me the chance. To say that “all the evidence in the world” leaves much to be desired is false, and the accompanied evidence supposedly against Jesus is inaccurate. It is not disparaging to acknowledge that the information to the Wiki is based on a limited number of sources that aren’t consistent with “all the evidence” in the world. TheLeftIsIrrational (talk) 03:17, 4 September 2020 (UTC)

I'm not in a position to debate a complex topic, unfortunately. I just don't think the edit was appropriate to be present in the page compared to criticizing the article in the respective talk page. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 03:18, 4 September 2020 (UTC)

reflist[edit]

Should you feel the need to have references on a talk page, you may pin it to the relevant section with Template:reflist. Also,
