Woo War One

"Woo is understood specifically as pseudoscience, uses a science-like formula, and attempts to place itself as scientifically, or at least reasonably, supported" (RationalWiki.org).

There's a lot of woo out there about the human past. Sick of it? Want to help fight it? Please consider making a small donation to Woo War One.  

Truth is the best weapon for fighting the woo, but sometimes it costs some money to get and disseminate that truth. Funds raised for Woo War One will be used to directly support woo fighting activities (purchasing materials, shipping things back and forth, and possibly even doing some materials testing). I'll write about how the money is used (on my blog at  www.andywhiteanthropology.com), and you'll feel awesome in 2016 if you're a part of it.  The truth is important. Funding it will be better than buying another cup of coffee.

Do it. Be a Woo Fighter.

Thank you to all who have contributed to Woo War One so far. As of today, we've raised $570 and spent about $143, leaving $427 in the Woo War Chest. I'm going to make a concerted effort to find the time to meet with the SEM people on campus as soon as possible to see what it's going to take to get some metal composition data from the California sword that we can compare to Christa Brosseau's data from the Nova Scotia sword.

Thank you for your donations so far. I have put our Woo War Chest to good use, purchasing a Design Toscano sword for analysis and buying a copy of "Experiencing Rome" to understand what has been said about the Florida Sword.

$1000 seems like a small amount to fight a war on so many fronts!

I truly enjoy and appreciate your blog, both pseudo/fringe and the archaeological articles. Keep up the good work.
