George Knapp’s Bio on Wikipedia: A Guerrilla Skeptic Assault 03/11/2024

In 2006 I joined Wikipedia as an editor and began providing information on topics that I knew well. I was careful to explore all available information and cite references that were available. I edited pages related to baseball, physics, psychology, computer science, and dozens of other topics. I enjoyed my time on this site and saw the collaborative effort as a sign of victory for the worldwide web and the internet community.

In 2010, I read the Wikipedia page on parapsychology and saw a very balanced description of the scientific nature of the field and the limits of the knowledge that was demonstrated by laboratory work and that which was only theorized. It limited the discussion to demonstrated phenomena and accurately avoided any mention of cryptozoology, UFOs, witchcraft, or topics related to religion. It included a section on skepticism that was fairly represented.

By 2014, that page had been completely changed to have a strong bias towards skepticism including the removal of any legitimate scientific references that were not from the Skeptical Inquirer magazine or books by people who didn't believe in parapsychology as a science. Having been a longtime editor on the site with over 100 articles behind me, I reviewed the references on this page and looked up the resources in my personal library.

I found an inconsistency in one reference and made a very small edit on the page to correct the interpretation of the reference. Essentially, the change involved restating the meaning of the quote that was referenced to put it in context. I was immediately attacked by editor/administrators who claimed I was acting contrary to WP:FRINGE, a term created to identify claims that were outside of the mainstream scientific community. Understand that this was half a sentence in an article of about 8,000 words.

Though I pointed out that my change didn't add any new information, but rather correctly put the referenced quote in context, my editor's page on Wikipedia was labelled and added to a watchlist for malicious editing. Two well-known editors attacked me and gave me an ultimatum to lay off or have my editing privileges revoked.

I tried to work through the processes that Wikipedia provides for editors to justify their postitions and establish their credibility, but I was frustrated at every turn. After more than 2 months of nearly daily exchanges, I stopped. I quit editing this site, and I avoid using it for anything at all. The information is not peer-reviewed, it's unreliable, and not appropriate for any academic topic. Besides that, it's presenting a forum for bullies to establish their perspective and pretend that it's some undeniable truth.

Searches often bring Wikipedia to the top of my list, so I just scroll down a few links, and I always find a more reliable and consistent source. I find it satisfying to skip the easy clicks and avoid the bullies. They don't need any encouragement.

Research opportunity for people who have had this special experience.

Ever taken psychedelics in nature and had a sense of profound communication or connection with another species?

As part of our ongoing ecodelic research project we are looking for respondents for a short survey who have had psychedelic experiences that led to encounter experiences with non-human species, such as special connections, communications or interactions.

The study is being supervised by Dr David Luke, Associate Professor of Psychology, and has been given ethical approval by the University of Greenwich. It will take approx. 15mins to complete and your responses, which remain anonymous and confidential, are valuable to us in helping us understand these unique experiences.

Survey and info link here: https://greenwichuniversity.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_39vf2sQa6dVOxZI
