 1 is a prime number, and Holy isn't evil... Unless I'm mistaken about one or both of these statements.

 Axton, 1 is not prime. A prime number is only when 1 and another number are the only multiples. 1 is not prime as there is no other number it can be multiplied with to get 1.

 The number one, by definition, is not prime. According to wikipedia:
"Until the 19th century, most mathematicians considered the number 1 a prime, [...] The change in label occurred so that the fundamental theorem of arithmetic, as stated, is valid, i.e., 'each number has a unique factorization into primes.'"
