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.

No, bubba. Show us the city you post from. Are you afraid to reveal your city, bubba? You modified your location, bubba because you are a filthy pompous liar with a double standard.

Here's what I wrote again:
Genetic tests indicates that 90% of todays Jews, i.e. the Ashkenazi, never had any ancestors who "wandered" around the Middle East, therefore Ashkenazi Jews can not possibly be the blood descendants of Abraham nor do they have any ancestral ties to any country in the ME, including Palestine.
Ashkenazi Jew genes and Arab genes are not similar. Palestinian Arab genes, regardless of their religious affiliation, i.e. Jew, Christian, Muslim, Samaritan, etc., and ME Arab genes in general test positive for the same haplogroups found in blacks of North Africa. NO Ashkenazi Jew genes have this gene marker. The "smoking gun" gene marker they do have indicating their Kazarian ancestry is the haplogroup Q gene marker.
Ashkenazi Jews are not and never were the descendants of Abraham or any Israelites, Palestine is not and never was their ancestral homeland, and they have absolutely NO cultural ties to ANY country in the Middle East. As Helen Thomas said: "The Jews need to get the hell out of Palestine."
Mental illness is no grounds for a belief system of any kind.

Wrong.
Prions do NOT have DNA but can transmit inherited traits.
There was much weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth when the theory of evolution fell onto its own DNA petard but....hey. That's the way the cookie crumbles, bubba.
"Prions are unprecedented infectious pathogens that cause a group of invariably fatal neurodegenerative diseases." <thank you National Institute of Health, PubMed>

What do "prions" have to do with the identification of DNA as the primary protein encoding molecule in genetics and evolution?

Nothing.

I'm just trying to say that 'genius' is well within the human performance envelope. Even a casual study of Savants illustrate that it is more likely differences in how the minds of these people store, recall and process information than some magic pixie dust being sprinkled on them. But, you stick with your theories and I'll stick with mine.

Godbots think they're special. Always have, always will. You are just a variation on a theme. Plus, you seem to harbor a great many people ill will. Another godbot attribute you have in abundance. This is where the path to 'higher consciousness' leads? I don't think so, Bubba.

What about those Billionaires in your country, that do not give to the charity? You hang them?
Really? Their kids get nothing? That is odd. Let's face it, some people have more money than they know what to do with. Giving massive amounts to charity is one thing, setting yourself up in a nice theocratic dictatorship is another. You know ... something to do.

In addition whatever wealth goes to charity after death, doesn't Islamic law call for all living Muslims to give a percentage of their money to help feed, clothe, and shelter the poor?
In the US, the Salvation Army and the Catholics operate homeless shelters, soup kitchens, and free rehab facilities in every major city in the US. Both are funded by private donations and sales from their thrift shops. They both do a great job here.
I think at the end of Ramadan they are expected to quit beating their slaves for a day and gift them a fresh scrap from the feast table.

Now why did you choose to omit this first part of your cut&paste from the Wikipedia article?
"Srinivasa Ramanujan FRS ( pronunciation (help·info))(Tamil: &#3000;&#3021;&#29 92;&#3008;&#2985;& #3007;&#2997;&#3006; &#3000; &#2992;&#3006;&#29 90;&#3006;&#2985;& #3009;&#2972;&#2985; &#3021;; 22 December 1887 – 26 April 1920) was an Indian mathematician and autodidact who, with almost no formal training in pure mathematics, made extraordinary contributions to mathematical analysis, number theory, infinite series, and continued fractions. Living in India with no access to the larger mathematical community, which was centred in Europe at the time, Ramanujan developed his own mathematical research in isolation. As a result, he sometimes rediscovered known theorems in addition to producing new work. Ramanujan was said to be a natural genius by the English mathematician G. H. Hardy, in the same league as mathematicians such as Euler and Gauss.[1] He died at the age of 32....."
Are you aware that "autodidact" means self-taught?
You implied that Ramanujan had only one biographer and omitted this part of the article as well:
"Ramanujan's first Indian biographers describe him as rigorously orthodox. Ramanujan credited his acumen to his family Goddess, Namagiri of Namakkal. He looked to her for inspiration in his work,[84] and claimed to dream of blood drops that symbolised her male consort, Narasimha, after which he would receive visions of scrolls of complex mathematical content unfolding before his eyes.[85] He often said, "An equation for me has no meaning, unless it represents a thought of God."[86][87]"
What Ramanugan discovered in these visions of scrolls cannot be explained by your atheistic rationalizations.
."....No one was talking about black holes back in the 1920s when Ramanujan first came up with mock modular forms, and yet, his work may unlock secrets about them," Ono says.
Expansion of modular forms is one of the fundamental tools for computing the entropy of a modular black hole. Some black holes, however, are not modular, but the new formula based on Ramanujan's vision may allow physicists to compute their entropy as though they were....."

In the 1920's our scientists were still working on making "iron birds fly" and "horses run on wheels" per the 8th century Tibetan prophecy that predicted the invention of these things would precede the scattering of the Tibetan people to all parts of the earth. Our scientists didn't start talking about black holes in space until 1958.
I mean ... what's the big deal? There are probably millions of 'geniuses' out there right now scrubbing toilets or mucking stalls with incredible brilliance. 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.

So, we're going to redefine global boundaries based upon ancestral and cultural ties? That's going to make something of a mess don't you think? Most of us Americans are going to have to vacate the premises. I heard Palestine is nice ...

A devout believer would attribute his successes to some deity or religion or God. We notice this on the sport fields even these days! If Ramajunna was aspired by his belief then his success cannot be die to that belief deity at work but his psychological condition due to his belief. The guy you are arguing the matter is a muslim and then it is strange that he wants to believe in a Hindu "deity" in a bizzare manner!

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.
