Crowdsourced evidence aggregator
Rationally is similar to Quora, but questions are answered with evidence instead of opinion. Visitor-submitted questions will range from hot button issues (“Do vaccines cause autism?”, “Are GMO crops safe to eat?”, “Are police more likely to shoot black suspects?”) to questions of personal importance (“Are SSRIs an effective treatment for depression?”) to questions of intellectual interest (“Is the universe expanding?”). The evidence consists of peer-reviewed studies submitted by the Rationally contributors, which are weighted based on study quality and votes. The goal of Rationally is to make evidence-based reasoning the norm for individuals and institutions, thereby increasing our rate of political, humanitarian and scientific progress.
