Hi!
yes you can turn it off:

,----
| ;; No startup screen
| (setq inhibit-startup-message t)
`----

And if you want another message:

;; Message displayed in *scratch* on startup
;; Take effect only on last emacs versions unless
;; inhibit-startup-(message/screen) is nil.

,----
| (setq initial-scratch-message (purecopy "\
| ;; Thierry's Lisp Interaction Buffer:
| 
| "))
`----
