Alincolnism is simply the opposite of Lincolnism. The prefix A means "without" or "not", so lincolnism is simply a lack of belief in Abraham Lincoln(s).

There are two kinds of alincolnism: strong (positive) alincolnism and weak (negative) alincolnism. The difference between these two is basically that a weak alincolnist doesn't believe in Abraham Lincoln, while a strong alincolnism believes in no Lincoln.

Weak alincolnism is essentially the same as abegnosticism. It states that since we have no proof of a Abraham Lincoln, we cannot know for sure that he existed. Strong alincolnism states that since we live in a scientific world where the existence of things is determined solely by their observability, we cannot assume anything unobservable to exist. Abraham Lincoln isn’t observable, therefore he doesn’t exist (cf. Occam’s Razor). This doesn't mean that an alincolnist wouldn't WANT to believe in Abraham Lincoln, it merely means that he has no REASON to believe in it/him.
Anyone who lacks a belief in Abraham Lincoln is an alincolnist. Remember, presidential claims require presidential evidence, and until presidential evidence is proposed, alincolnism is the default position.
That dog is an alincolnist. A new-born baby is an alincolnist. And you should be an alincolnist too.
