Please note that for this article "Atheism" also includes agnostics, deists, pagans, wiccans... in other words non-religious.

You will notice this is a statement of fact. And to be fact it is supported by evidence (see references below). Now you can have "faith" that this is not true, but by the very definition of faith, that is just wishful thinking.

What do "prions" have to do with the identification of DNA as the primary protein encoding molecule in genetics and evolution?
Nothing.
Ezdizit was then telling me/us a porkie pie when he had lost an argument! LOL!

NB: I was minded to check up since prions have not been in news since the BSE beef outbreak in the UK in 90s.

The Nobel Prize Committee has been wrong by granting Obama the Nobel Prize Peace Award.

Obama acts more as unlawfulness like neo-Hilter as radical neo-con by hacking civilians, like Bush (IN IRAQ WAR) as AN outlaw.

In addition, Obama overthrew government in Libya without UN approval.
Obama had done too many drones by killing the wrong people, like families and children and women, by saying they had killed terrorists instead.
As CIA was wrong on Snowden by saying he was on the airplane going to Bolivia (in fact Snowden was not on plane), Obama could be just like the International outlaw Bush, lying about WMD-Iraq, by telling no true facts of chemical weapons usage in Syria.

Obama also gave no real facts of pictures of dead Bin Laden by saying bin Laden was killed, while having the man who gave information of bin Laden to CIA locked up in Pakistan for 30 years, so that he told no more whether the real story of bin Laden was true or not. Yet the CIA made up story of the Bin Laden raid as if they had done that when nobody was there to witness. Since CIA was wrong about many things, how could that be real or not that people could trust?

The Nobel Prize Committee has given too many prizes to US in a lot of areas, from Physics, Chemistry, Economics, etc., by saying the other world universities are not good as they rank the top 100 universities on the planet by naming mostly the US ones, British, and few from Germany and Russia and so on.

Yet the world is uprising with more better people everywhere than those of US, while US is going downhill doing all the wrongs and breaking the Universal rules, it is time the world must carry back-bone moral responsibilities of these modern times to face troubles ahead as it has been made messes by being biased to US, as that was even done by the Nobel Prize Committee.

ezdzit is then labouring to justify his stance using dud arguments. Palestinian issue is a modern political one but it is messed up because of the jihadist sentiments/agenda. I have net many highly educated Palestinians in London and all of them were socialist and not jihadist. Former US President Bill Clinton nearly pulled off a historic compromise in brokering an agreement but he failed due to the formerly socialist Palestinian leader Arafat being unable to let go of Jerusalem on the religious sentiments. Clinton told us that Arafat was unable to transform himself into a statesman for the sake of Palestinians. Arafat strated to behave as if he had defeated Isrealis!.

I will only mention one of the deceptions in your post. The US did not get the informant locked up in Pakistan. It was the double dealing Pakistani government! The US lot were not happy but then Pakistanis were not even told of the raid on Bin Laden in the military garrision town of Abbotabad until the mission was accomplished. Why try to confuse those who did not the news at the time?

No bias of Nobel prize committees. Are you aware that the Peace prize procedure is distinct. Largest world economy by far will always spend more on research and then there will be opportunity for its citizens to shine by making new discoveries.

Science doesn't know and cannot say for sure what DNA does or how its involved in inherited traits. Your claim that it does know, i.e. that DNA is "the primary protein encoding molecule in genetics and evolution" is simply wishful thinking----not scientific fact.

No. Global boundaries were already redefined back in 1948 based upon zionazi LIES about ancestral and cultural ties to the land of Canaan. And, redefining those boundaries has made a huge mess.

The System, being religious in nature, is designed to keep them right there, doing what they do best! Religion is quite good at keeping them muted. That's why the occasional genius who gets recognized as such seems such a fluke.

The Bible, i.e. Song of Songs, describes Solomon as a mulatto with golden skin and bushy black hair.-- kinda like Obama. Before the 1960's and political correctness, people like Solomon and Obama were called "High Yellows".

There are many passages in the Bible describing the ethnicity of the different tribes which the sons and daughters of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob intermarried and bred with and all of them were Arab and North African. NONE of these tribes originated in what it now called Russia or Eastern Europe.

Regardless of your lies here you know they are looked upon by the majority of Islamic people as holy rulers blessed and the descendants of Muhammad himself.

Not one Imam decries their belligerent un Islamic lifestyle and many Imams and clerics happily join in on the fun granting them blessings and prayers while having sex with women for money.

This shows the ultimate hypocrisy in Islam and you cannot deny it. Even you refuse to denounce their behavior and actions that they flaunt in the face of the public. But you will approve of a 15 year old girl getting her nose chopped off if she upsets her husband.
