As the bowl of petunias said, "Oh no, not again."

Nice try at shifting the burden of proof. How times have theists tried it? It must be into the millions by now.

Atheism is from the Greek prefix 'a-' = without, and 'theos' = god, in other words the absence of theism.

Atheism is simply the absence of (theological) belief. It is not up to atheists or anyone else to prove a null hypothesis; it is up to theists or those proposing a hypothesis, to provide proof.

Not that we're holding our breath waiting for it.

I would LOVE TO uninstall Facebook from my phone! I've never had, nor wanted, a Facebook account.

But do you think the faceless bastards at Facebook/Google/LG/AT&T/whoever infected my phone with this crap will LET me uninstall it? Hell, no! That would be too sensible and respectful of the owner's choices!

The best I can do with this evil waste of my hardware/storage/etc is to disable it, revoke all its permissions, and stop it from updating itself. Nice one, corporate drones. You're pointlessly using my storage and definitely pissing me off, with (to the very best of my ability) no benefit at all to yourselves. *golf clap*

When we asked people about why they used ad blocking software, the primary reason we heard was to stop annoying, disruptive ads.

Of course the primary reason you HEARD was "to stop annoying, disruptive ads", because you're an advertiser, or in other words a raving psychopath.

The primary reason they actually SAID was "to stop ads."
