These are the reasons why the Natural Philosophy Wikipedia exists and the rules that govern it.

Why We Are Closed to Public Editing

  • Open wikis by nature are consensus-based which is not conducive for the advancement of science
  • Open wikis lead to marginalizing criticism of mainstream science
  • Open wikis lead to marginalizing and "pseudofying" scientific alternatives
  • Open wiki gatekeepers are arrogant and for the most part "Intellectuals" and not "critical thinkers"

Rules for this Wikipedia

  • All criticisms that have scientific merit will be allowed and described in a neutral manner
  • Scientific knowledge will not be judged by an author's credentials
  • Scientific knowledge will not be judged by count of references to that knowledge, work, or person
  • Politics, conspiracy theories, UFOs, and religious knowledge is not allowed
  • Scientific assumptions are to be included any and everywhere possible including the attempt to state "inferred" assumptions
