Okay so it's time to vote in round one of the League of Reason's Quack of the Year 2016 Awards. Here are the nominations. You have 2 weeks to get your votes in, the candidate with the least votes is eliminated.


Donald Trump

Nominated by Prolescum
Prolescum said:
I humbly submit Donald Trump for his views on mental health and vaccines. Also, climate change and his feelings on the EPA. He's apparently not fond of Planned Parenthood or the ACA. Imagine, he's barely months from the White House! :lol:
Dave Murphy

Nominated by Laurens

My nomination goes to Dave Murphy for making me brush up on my basics in refuting the flat earth bullshit:

Mike "Health Ranger" Adams

Nominated by Dustnite

I'm going with the "Health Ranger" Mike Adams. There's something about anti-vaxxers that draws a visceral response from me... He runs probably the #1 anti science website on the net:



This video has everything from woo to Nazis, hits all the top 10 quack points! Did I mention he's an AIDS denialist? I'll take my trophy now...
Andrew Wakefield

Nominated by Rando
Rando said:
I know how low brow it is to pick an obvious candidate but I nominate Andrew Wakefield. He is directing a "documentary" based on his lies, and it is going to get a dvd release. I think he's relevant because it's 2016 and he is still peddling his lies to anyone who will listen and judging by it's viewer count it is getting attention.

The "Health Ranger" is bad but he is merely a carrier of the disease of ignorance, Wakefield is patient zero. This disease has a body count, Wakefield's crap is killing people and he doesn't care so long as he keeps making money and getting press.
Boris Johnson

Nominated by he_who_is_nobody

I am going to nominate the Trump of the U.K., Boris Johnson.

Keith Thompson

Nominated by MarsCydonia
MarsCydonia said:
I would nominate Keith Thompson of Reformed Apologetics Ministries, a slavery and genocide apologist, director of the Atheists don't exist youtube "documentary" who has offered us this year yet another "brilliant" piece of documentary film making:

Darwinism's Downfall
Filled with the usual misquotes and misinterpretations of evolutionary science and geology (such as "macro-evolution has never been proven") and the usual "Evolution leads to Nazism" scare among others.

Get voting guys. Post your reasoning behind your vote below!

Round one! Lets go!

My vote went to Boris Johnson. Brexit campaign made it acceptable for racism in politics again.

Whoa poor wording. I should refrain from posting before I'm fully awake in future
