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.

Nope, a lie is claiming something when you know the answer is something else.
Just like claiming you have proof when you have no proof.
You know you don't have proof, so claiming you do is a lie.

You don't know how to make a valid argument, you don't know how to back yourself up...you're just like all the other crazy fundies.

Evolution isn't impossible.
Something that's proven and a fact can't be impossible.

Evolution is to impossibility as a baseball is to fruits.

Wow great post! Lmfao! Tell us more about Stephen Hawking's!

BTW just because some successful people may have had dyslexia doesn't make everyone who has it successful!

Plus dyslexia wasn't even diagnosed until 1887 so some of your people on the list couldn't have been diagnosed with it!

Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahah ahahahaha!

Look who's talking.

Wikipedia:
This article is about the food Spam

Spam (shortened from spiced ham) is a canned precooked meat product made by the Hormel Foods Corporation, first introduced in 1937. The labeled ingredients in the classic variety of Spam are chopped pork shoulder meat, with ham meat added, salt, water, modified potato starch as a binder, and sodium nitrite as a preservative. Spam's gelatinous glaze, or aspic, forms from the cooling of meat stock.

The product has become part of many jokes and urban legends about mystery meat, which has made it part of pop culture and folklore. Through a Monty Python sketch, in which Spam is portrayed as ubiquitous and inescapable, its name has come to be given to electronic spam, especially spam email.

In 2007, the seven billionth can of Spam was sold.

Spam is made in Austin Minnesota and if you note the location of sickofit

LOL. Dolt.

Positive belief equals religion? So saying I believe Grandma's cake will be awesome is a religious belief? Saying I don't believe aliens rule the world from invisible taco shaped spaceships is a religious belief?

Sorry mr. Ultra low iq but you really need to understand what words mean so you stop humiliating yourself as much.

Ok Dolt lets do this very slow so you can keep up.

Believing that no God or gods exist is unprovable.

Believing in something unprovable is called faith.

faith\ˈfāth\
noun
1 a : firm belief in something for which there is no proof

Synonyms: religion

Did ya get that?

Oh are you still lost?
