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

Redacting prediction?[edit]

Isn't that anti-science, when it appears to be wrong? Document your errors! Ikanreed (talk) 20:26, 3 November 2014 (UTC)

We've removed some of the more outlandish predictions before, I consider "Democrats win back +30 seats in an unextraordinary midterm" one of them. I'll put it back nonetheless. Osaka Sun (talk) 20:32, 3 November 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I mean, it's totally clear it's not going to happen, I just like the difference between rationalwiki predictions(democratic about guesses, acknolwedges error) versus conservapedia predictions(unilateral proclamations that erase or deny error). I have a special appreciation for wrongness, and more than that, acknowledging it, as a means of self-improvement. Ikanreed (talk) 21:19, 3 November 2014 (UTC)

Jimmy Carter quote[edit]

What's so bad about Jimmy Carter? I mean, I know Republicans hate him, which makes that quote if anything more appropriate, I think. --Ymir (talk) 06:57, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

"Why so scared?" on Anita Sarkeesian[edit]

Someone thought it was vandalism but I saw you added it half a year ago. Would you mind clarifying?—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 02:19, 26 January 2015 (UTC)

Crusades psuedohistory[edit]

Hi, Osaka Sun. I made some remarks on the talk page for the Crusades article about the psuedohistory section. If you'll recall, you hid the section last year due to lack of sourcing. Please add your two cents (on that talk page). Thank you. Rand0 (talk) 16:22, 19 September 2015 (UTC)
