With the vast amount of information that we nowadays have access to, it's not possible for an individual to sort out fair and honest information from disinformation and propaganda.

Search engines serve links to Wikipedia articles near the top of their results, but some of those articles are extremely unreliable. And when we look for better information, the choice is often between two extremes: more unquestioned "mainstream" dogma or "alternative" sites of doubtful reliability.

This new website is meant to serve as a tool for a community of people who want to be well informed. Together we can achieve much more while spending less time individually.

  • With a blog (started February 2019). Recent blog posts:
    • Sea level rise and NASA
    • Climate: "Deniers" and "Believers"
  • The focus is our own research-based wiki, correcting selected Wikipedia articles. Planned categories:
    • Fact Checking websites - existing fact checking sites
    • Current affairs - debated topics that are in the news
    • Society - still relevant topics that have been in the news (or should have been)
    • Environment - air pollution, pesticides etc.
    • Health - medicine, alternative medicine, food supplements etc.
    • Science - history of science, relativity, quantum mechanics etc.
(Proposals for topics here)
Count: 13 pages

We will introduce a new method to arrive at a reasonably objective and fair presentation of facts in our Wiki articles.
