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: $3500Goal: $3500

I agree[edit]

People are indeed weird. --Mikal Harass Follow 17:06, 17 December 2012 (UTC)


Do you think the word could ever be repurposed? Or is it an etymological fallacy that it shall always hold it's original meaning? Occasionaluse (talk) 15:34, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

Dunning-Kruger Effect[edit]

You reverted me here, without explanation. I think you are wrong, the D-K effect is NOT about "his own inability to differentiate between a description of X and an analysis of the description itself", nor is it about the "[delineation between] what something describes from what it means". Could you please explain in what way the D-K effect applies here? Thanks! -- (talk) 16:52, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

I moved this where it belongs. -- (talk) 10:29, 17 April 2013 (UTC)
