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.

Vigilant Citizen is a website that is dedicated to discovering the hidden "symbolism"(?) in the popular media, usually involving the Illuminati.
