RationalWiki's 2019 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 2019.

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: $5800Goal: $6000

Subtle energy (or woo energy) is any supposed form of energy that is powerful enough to create healing effects but too tiny to be detected by scientific instruments sensitive enough to detect a single quantum leap in a very, very cold piece of metal. These energies sometimes vibrate; apparently direct current is insufficiently subtle. Some notable alternative therapies based on subtle energy include Reiki and therapeutic touch.
