Essay: Prominent atheists weighed on the scales and found wanting

Two of the major risk factors for becoming obese according to the Mayo Clinic are poor dietary choices and inactivity.[1] According to the Gallup Organization, "Very religious Americans are more likely to practice healthy behaviors than those who are moderately religious or nonreligious."[2]

According to the Gallup Organization, "Very religious Americans are more likely to practice healthy behaviors than those who are moderately religious or nonreligious."[3] Gallup declared concerning the study which measured the degree to which religiosity affects health practices: "Generalized linear model analysis was used to estimate marginal scores all five reported metrics after controlling for age (in years), gender, race/ethnicity, marital status, education (number of years), log of income, and region of the country."[4]

The Gallup study gives insight into the above average health habits of the very religious and not necessarily the health habits of atheists. The reason is that the Gallup organization defines a non-religious as person where "Religion is not an important part of daily life and church/synagogue/mosque attendance occurs seldom or never. This group constitutes 29.7% of the adult population." While all atheists are non-religious, not all non-religious people are atheists. For information concerning overweight and obese atheists, including a list of prominent overweight and obese atheists, please see: Atheism and obesity.


Perhaps if the atheist PZ Myers drank more Slimfast and less beer, he would have had a trimmer figure in this picture.

PZ Myers appears to have a problem with intellectual slothfulness[5] and perhaps his slothfulness has sometimes applied to his "exercise habits" as well. As of December 26, 2010, Conservapedia is not aware of PZ Myers endorsing any exercise equipment.

Humorous question of the day

Question: How does the American Atheists organization arrange a meeting of their Board of Directors?

Answer: They yell out Sooie! (please Atheism and obesity)

If you're so smart Mr. Atheist, then why are you so fat?

Many atheist like to pretend that atheists are very wise and intelligent even though the evidence can hardly be called convincing.[8][9] [10] Please see: Are atheists smarter than the average bear?. Next time a fat atheists gets uppity ask him, "If you're so smart Mr. Atheist, then why are you so fat?".

An overweight PZ Myers being assisted on and off the triceratops at the Creation Museum

PZ Myers, supper is on the table! Sooie!

The overweight atheist and evolutionist PZ Myers being assisted on and off the triceratops at the Creation Museum can be seen HERE

If PZ Myers were thinner and sprier, he would have needed no assistance! Evidently, the atheist and evolutionist community is quite aware that PZ Myers is fat!

The creationist Ken Ham, who is a big believer in medical science and exercise science and is much thinner than PZ Myers, climbs up and down the triceratops at the Creation Museum all by himself!

Gallery of well known slim Christians and slim biblical figures

  • Chuck Norris
  • Pat Boone
  • Joshua - Mighty conqueror (definitely not fat)
  • Noah - Lived a long life so definitely not fat. Plus, there are no accounts of very large food provisions being provided especially for Noah in the ark nor are there any accounts of all you can eat buffets taking place on the ark
  • The Apostle Paul - Christians lowered Paul in a basket from the top of the city wall and there are no accounts of an unusually large number of Christians who lowered Paul

Please note: Unlike many atheists and agnostics[11][12], godly biblical figures did not have obese figures! That's why they are often referred to as godly biblical figures! Godly biblical figures = Slim figures

Robert G. Ingersoll appears to have been a portly agnostic. A statue which can be seen HERE commemorates the obesity of Robert Ingersoll.

Trapped in the atheist closet

In 2011, the Indian American atheist blogger Hemant Mehta recently encouraged American atheists to come out of the atheist closet and posited an unrealistic amount of closet atheists. Of course, given their girth, many atheists are unable to come out of the atheist closet. Please see: Penn Jillette's walrus slide vs. thin Indian Christian lady dancers and Atheism and obesity

An atheist was so fat....

An atheist man was so fat that the police came up to him on a corner and said "Break it up!"

Attention agnostics! Stop laughing at all the fat atheists!

Attention agnostics! Stop laughing at all the fat atheists! I hope you didn't think we would forget to mention that the agnostic Robert G. Ingersoll was obese. A statue which can be seen HERE commemorates the obesity of Robert Ingersoll.

Mirror, Mirror on the wall. Who's the fattest agnostic of them all?

The prominent evolutionist Stephen Jay Gould was also an agnostic.[13][14]

In terms of obesity, who was the most prominent obese agnostic - Robert G. Ingersoll or Stephen Jay Gould? You be the judge of this agnostic beauty contest!

Slim atheists convention

Obese atheists heaven - Abandon all hope of slimness all ye who enter here!

Every time I think of the subject of atheism and obesity, I can't stop laughing! If you're so smart Mr. Atheist, then why are you so fat?

Questions of the day

Should obese atheists airline passengers have to pay for 2 airline seats? If they are very obese should obese atheists have to pay for 3 airline seats? How fat does an obese atheist have to be before he/she is refused entry on the plane?

Conservapedia and atheists - a quote

"I do know that obesity impairs brain function. Perhaps that is why so many atheists at Conservapedia have great difficulty spelling the words atheism, atheist and atheists." - Anonymous

Little known fact about atheist Isaac Asimov

Besides being a lover of books, atheist Isaac Asimov was also a big fan of God's tasty invention commonly called "food" as can be seen HERE

She helped ban prayer in public schools, but not soft drink dispensers in public schools

Madalyn Murray O'Hair-Wikimedia.jpg

Although Madalyn Murray O'Hair, founder of the American Atheists organization, was very fat, she never sang God Bless America before hockey games. And although she did manage to help ban teacher lead prayers in school, she never tried to ban soft drink vending machines in schools.

Despite the fact that the subject of history is taught quite poorly in American public schools, Madalyn Murray O'Hair is beloved by many fat atheist school children in American public schools - especially those who suffer from "Santa syndrome". Atheists children are often crushed when they find out jolly Saint Nick is a lie as can be seen HERE. Obese children strongly identify with Santa Claus and are quite upset when they find out Santa Claus is a big fat lie.

The American atheist community often pretends it is very wise and intelligent.[15][16] [17] However, they have never explained why they allowed Madalyn Murray O'Hair to be the "face of atheism" for so long a period.

Question: Why did American atheists want the face of atheism to have a double chin?

Madalyn Murray O'Hair did particularly badly in her debate with Dr. Walter Martin.[18] For example, when she claimed there were supposedly were contradictions in the Bible, Dr. Martin asked her to provide an example of one and Ms. O'Hair did not and could not offer even an alleged example of one.[19] In addition, Ms. O'Hair did a poor job defending against the issue of atheism and mass murder.[20]

American Atheists organization faces challenges in terms of leadership body weight

We all know the founder of the American Atheists organization, Madalyn Murray O'Hair was fat, but the question now is "Does the The American Atheists organization continue to unsuccessfully face challenges in terms of its leadership's body weight?" Conservapedia seems to thinks so, but judge for yourself. As noted earlier, as of December of 2010, the board of directors certainly had a significant number of individuals on its board who could benefit from weight loss as can be seen HERE.

Bible believing homeschoolers vs. Godless American Atheists

I thought the American Atheists organization believes in science! Have not medical scientists and exercise scientists discovered methods to successfully lose weight? Conservapedia believes they have! Please watch this "Conservapedia on the Hour" video on GodTube: Conservapedia on the Hour. As far as the video, unlike your board of directors, there is not a single student in this group of individuals who has a significant issue with body weight! Your board's apparent lack of diligence in applying weight loss science certainly helps explain why you believe in the pseudoscience of evolution!


War against excess body weight: Bible believing home schoolers 1, Godless American Atheists organization 0


Suggestion to the American Atheists organization: Please watch the movie "The Battle of the Bulge" as it may be very helpful. The key to winning the "Battle of the buldge" was cut off the fuel supply line of enemy. In your case, the enemy is Satan and the supply line may be abundant supply depots of food!

(The popular Christian YouTube producer shockofgod has pointed out that although atheists often criticize the God of the Bible, atheists never criticize the devil because they don't want to criticize their father.)

Vehemently pro-evolution New Atheism leaders and health practices

Given that medical science research indicates that being overweight causes brain impairment and that Daniel Dennett has had issues with being overweight, it is ironic that Dennet's book Consciousness Explained is beloved by those who deny God in favor of a pseudoscientific naturalist philosophy of the mind.[21] [22][23]

New Atheism is a form of militant atheism. The term New Atheism which first appeared in the November 2006 edition of Wired magazine, is frequently applied to a series of six best-selling books by five authors that appeared in the period between 2004–2008. These authors include Sam Harris, Daniel Dennett, Richard Dawkins, Victor J. Stenger and Christopher Hitchens.[24] The New Atheist leaders claim to be pro-science, 3 out of 5 of these atheist men have had issues with being overweight as can be seen HERE and HERE and HERE As noted earlier, PZ Myers is also a leader within the New Atheism movement and Myers has had problems with being overweight as can be seen HERE.

According to medical science, there are a significant number of physical and mental health related problems associated with being overweight. In the late 1990s, Dennet had coronary artery bypass surgery (coronary artery bypass surgery reroutes blood around clogged arteries to enhance blood flow and oxygen to the heart).[25][26] In 2010, as noted earlier PZ Myers had health problems related to his heart.[27]

Hippocrates was an early advocate of the health benefits of exercise and nutrition (see also: Nutritional science).[28] On the other hand, PZ Myers and a significant amount of other New Atheism leaders, seem to lack a full appreciation of the importance of nutritional science, exercise science and the latest findings of medical science (see also Atheism and obesity}. As of May 2011, Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris have not publicly commented on the significant problems the New Atheism leadership has experienced in terms of overweight members.

New Atheists are known for their vehement advocacy of the evolutionist pseudoscience. Also, given that being overweight causes brain impairment and that Daniel Dennet has had issues with being overweight, it is ironic that Dennet's book Consciousness Explained is beloved by those who deny God in favor of a pseudoscientific naturalist philosophy of the mind.[29] [30][31]

Chinese buffet restaurant owners

Chinese restaurant owners make sure that buffets are well stocked, lest any militant atheists be tempted to grab fish out of their restaurant aquariums.

Postscript

When PZ Myers attended the atheist convention in Australia, he was quite disappointed that he could not find any Bob's Big Boy restaurants in Australia. He does appear to be quite jolly though that he did manage to find a pub offering ale that tasted great, but was not necessarily less filling.

The Christian Vox Day has challenged atheist PZ Myers to a debate, but PZ Myers has yet to agree to debate (Dr. Myers is quite aware he would lose such a debate). However, the current consensus within the scientific community is that Vox Day can do many more sit-ups than PZ Myers.
Did PZ Myers' ascent and descent of the triceratops at the Creation Museum really prove that pigs cannot fly?

Because obese atheist pet owners are such poor role models, tragically their pets often become obese too.

In addition, when an obese atheists is confronted by spouse or family member concerning their obesity, they often point to their obese pet and say "Everybody is doing it."

The perverse and cruel French atheist Marquis de Sade laced candy with a substance that made people very sick. There was no shortage of candy in the de Sade house. The Marque de Sade developed a considerable problem with obesity during his life.[32]
The Barna Group found concerning atheism and morality that those who hold to the worldviews of atheism or agnosticism in America were more likely, than theists in America, to look upon the following behaviors as morally acceptable: illegal drug use; excessive drinking; sexual relationships outside of marriage; abortion; cohabitating with someone of opposite sex outside of marriage; obscene language; gambling; pornography and obscene sexual behavior; and engaging in homosexuality/bisexuality.[33]

Of course, once sly marketers in Las Vegas found out that many atheists love gambling they promptly installed elaborate desert stations at their casino buffets. Casino buffets are often referred to as "Obese atheists heaven".

Scholars debate whether the philosopher David Hume was an atheist or agnostic. There is broad agreement among historians though that Mr. Hume was not fond of vigorous exercise and dieting.
Ken Ham often yodels when climbing up and down the triceratops at the Creation Museum and he also yodels when engaging in mountain climbing. To the best of Conservapedia's knowledge, the corpulent PZ Myers does not engage in mountain climbing.

Besides being a lover of atheistic Communism, Chairman Mao Zedong was also quite fond of all you can eat Chinese buffets. Unfortunately, for the Chinese people the atheistic political philosophy of communism didn't prove to be very good at providing food for the Chinese citizenry and many people needlessly starved as a result.
Atheists commonly reject the existence of the devil and the devil takes great delight in inciting atheists to gluttony. The popular Christian YouTube producer shockofgod has pointed out that although atheists often criticize the God of the Bible, atheists never criticize the devil because they don't want to criticize their father.

"My dear brethren, do not ever forget, when you hear the progress of lights praised, that the loveliest trick of the Devil is to persuade you that he does not exist!" - Charles Baudelaire, The Generous Gambler

"While working your hardest, quite rightly, on other fronts, you must not neglect a little quiet infiltration in respect of gluttony...Males are best turned into gluttons with the help of their vanity. They ought to be made to think themselves very knowing about food, to pique themselves on having found the only restaurant in the town where steaks are really "properly" cooked." - the demonic character Screwtape in C.S. Lewis's, Screwtape Letters[34]

Kim Il Sung was a communist dictator and an obese atheist who died of a heart attack.[35] Kimchi is one of the world's most healthiest foods and very popular among Koreans.[36] Unfortunately, for Kim II Song, he ate too much of it.
