I was not joking. I was stating a scientific fact.

You're kidding right? The tone of voice of a line of text!?

That's just in your head man...

If you are hearing voices in your head, I suggest you seek psychiatry help immediately.

There is no 'voice' in text contained in the realm of the internet.

Also...you may not want to say that anything that Satchmo says towards the field of medical issues...is a joke.

I heard something about Autism and Epilepsy were somewhat related. Is that true? I don't think it is but I thought I ought double check.

Autistic individuals are far more likely to be epileptics than the general population, but not all people with autism experience seizures.

So the two are somewhat related, could someone have epilepsy without being autistic?

Correct me if I'm wrong satchmo but I believe it's actually quite common to have epilepsy without autism.

You are completely correct. Vast majority of epileptics are not autistic.

To be more accurate, these two conditions are not related, but seizure disorders are associated with autism.
