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 2020.

We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with !

“”I don't address religion because of God; I address it because of the people who believe in God. I don't want them to believe in a fantasy. I want them to believe what is true. If most of the world believed in Harry Potter and based life decisions — that affect everyone — on that belief, then I'd spend my time addressing Harry Potter. Get this straight: I don't know if a god exists, but I do KNOW the Abrahamic God doesn't exist, for He is an illogical concept, rife with contradiction — a square circle of loving wrath, known to have gone through an evolution as He was compiled by the ancients throughout history.
Jon Matter, better known as DarkMatter2525( ) (and his alternate non-cartoon channel, DarkAntics( )), is a popular atheist YouTuber who makes animations, mainly against fundamentalist religious views. He has another channel at which he has videos debunking fallacious theist claims.
- If God Weren't Invisible(omnipresence is, if you really think about it ) on how weird

- The Theft of Our Values( ) debunks the idea that the answer to Islam is Christianity and further debunks the above religious scientists argument for those claiming that Christianity has some merits for the scientific revolution
He's also criticized people who don't criticize Islam for being violent, writing, "Why do you believe a white guy who says he kills because of racist beliefs, but not a Muslim who says he kills because of religious beliefs?" and "Violence has nothing to do with religion? Okay. When was the last time you complained about Buddhaphobia?"
DarkMatter2525 has recently used not as bad as arguments to state that the world is getting better, not worse, that activism is counterproductive because it consists only of complaining, and people don't know how good they have it, relying heavily on first world problems to make his point.
