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 !
Fun:Evidence for the existence of the supernatural Bingo
A little something to make arguments with paranormalists go a bit more smoothly. Since most of them use the same few arguments, just mark them off as they come up. If you feel like it, add more arguments or improve this table.

|I saw it on television, therefore it's real||A friend told me...||You need to watch this half-hour YouTube video which is bound to convince you.||There are many books written about it, all of these people can't be lying.||Scientists don't have all the answers|
|Coast to Coast AM "proved" it was true||Science will one day prove that the supernatural exists||It's a conspiracy!!!||NOAA is hiding the evidence||Logically, the supernatural exists|
