WHERE AND WHERE? ScottDG 17:01, 31 December 2011 (EST)

I inserted the links shortly after creating those. Conservative 17:54, 31 December 2011 (EST)


I was hoping to add an exceptions section, but for some reason the page is locked. Obese atheist Stephen Fry, for example, is 6'4". For atheist Richard Darwinism I can only find on-line the information "there are no public sources confirming Richard Dawkins' height". Come on Señor Dawkins - what have you got to hide? --QPR 09:17, 2 January 2012 (EST)

Seems he's 5 feet 10 inches.[1] --RFColleton 09:26, 2 January 2012 (EST)
Thanks - well spotted. Bang on the average then. Shame. --QPR 09:34, 2 January 2012 (EST)
Bang on the average for a young English or American adult, unfortunately. Dawkins is 70. When he was born the average Englishman was 5 foot 8. PZ Myers is shorter though. From photos of him and Dawkins together I'd say he's about 5 foot 8 too, which puts him slightly below the average for a 54 year old American. --RFColleton 10:01, 2 January 2012 (EST)
Richard Dawkins is an agnostic and atheist poser. He is nothing more than a weak atheist which is nothing more than agnostics pretending to be atheists. Atheist posers are intellectually atheist runts. :) William Lane Craig called out Christopher Hitchens on the definition of atheism during a debate and Hitchens was clearly rattled and childishly pretended his earpiece wasn't working. Shockofgod's question is very effective against atheist posers and proud atheists who clearly can't justify their atheism. Conservative 13:19, 2 January 2012 (EST)


Just looking at the history of this page, and it seems a bit harsh on Becky to block her on the 90/10 rule when she has made only one contribution to the whole of Conservapedia, and in addition to delete that very contribution so nobody can read it. Clearly anyone has to start with a single contribution, and it's as likely as not, that as a newcomer, they will go for a talk page rather than an article. Does every newcomer get treated this way? Technically they all breach 90/10. --QPR 09:41, 2 January 2012 (EST)

I see you are falling for the username Becky. Atheism clearly has a shortage of womenfolk and I suspect "Becky" was nothing more than a male atheist wiki dweller trying to gain mercy from the 90/10 rule (see: Atheism and women). It is kind of like male Muslims sneaking out of an area and avoiding capture wearing a burka! Conservative 13:25, 2 January 2012 (EST)
That's a somewhat circular (as well as an irrelevant) argument. You're saying that since you believe there are few women atheists, then anyone you suspect of being an atheist (and Becky said nothing to suggest that she was) cannot be a woman. And thus your belief that there are few women atheists is reinforced. But if you're focussing on my use of the feminine pronoun, you really are missing the point. --QPR 14:05, 2 January 2012 (EST)
Well it certainly seems as if some people have a SHORT temper concerning this essay. :) I showed a couple people the essay and they got a big laugh out of the essay. One person said her stomach hurt. :) Conservative 23:10, 5 January 2012 (EST)
Perhaps the person with stomach ache should consult a doctor. --PhilipN 23:21, 5 January 2012 (EST)
I have a feeling a YouTube video may come out discussing atheism's SHORTcomings. :) Perhaps, several YouTube videos. :) Conservative 03:49, 6 January 2012 (EST)
Sorry - evident sense of humour failure. So this is a spoof of Atheism and obesity after all. --QPR 08:13, 6 January 2012 (EST)

The Atheism and obesity article has over 60 sections showing the link between atheism and obesity. The weight of the evidence shows that atheism and lukewarm religion is a causal factor for obesity and fervent biblical Christianity is a causal factor for slimness. Orthodox Jews tend to be slim as well. Unlike many prominent atheists and a gigantic amount of obese Chinese atheists, the biblical figures of Moses, Elijah, Mary, Joseph, Jesus, Peter and Paul were all slim! A biblical figure is a slim figure! Conservative 17:34, 24 October 2014 (EDT)

If only we could convince a significant proportion of Americans and Mexicans to see how silly their atheism is we could wipe out a lot of obesity. CaryG 17:41, 24 October 2014 (EDT)
Post Greatest Generation in the USA the society became less religious and more obese - very sad. But the pendulum could swing back in a time of economic hardship as the historical data shows that people often go back to faith and family during difficult times. As for Mexico, I am a Protestant. Most Protestants in the world live outside the Western World and are slimmer than most Western atheists. :) Plus, the social science data indicates that religion increases self-discipline.
Feel free to engage in last wordism at this juncture. Conservative 18:04, 24 October 2014 (EDT)
Thanks. CaryG 18:05, 24 October 2014 (EDT)

Is this a satirical essay

?--Tomqua 15:46, 24 October 2014 (EDT)

I see it is, at least it is in the satire category. Tell me Conservative, do you consider genocide and domestic violence subjects worthy of satirizing?--Tomqua 15:52, 24 October 2014 (EDT)
Satire in relation to prideful and immoral/unjust individuals and groups is a time honored tradition. And there are certainly people who appreciate such satire. For example, the Freedom From Atheism Foundation featured this article on its social media platform and it got over 900 likes.
Sorry to hear that you disagree with having the atheist community exposed for their ill behavior via satire.Conservative 17:18, 24 October 2014 (EDT)
Is "The use of the wrong pronoun" to cover up the fact you just called me the son of the Devil? Because I consider genocide inappropriate for satire? Don't worry, I got it captured. I think that is slander friend.--Tomqua 17:28, 24 October 2014 (EDT)
PS. It must have taken you at least an hour to hit the thumbs up 900 times. Good effort.--Tomqua 17:31, 24 October 2014 (EDT)

You wrote: "It must have taken you at least an hour to hit the thumbs up 900 times." You sound very bitter. I suggest becoming a Christian and one of the many benefits of being a Christian is that you will have a more sunny disposition. At the present time, you certainly could be a wet blanket to people during the upcoming holiday season. See: Atheism and depression. Conservative 19:19, 24 October 2014 (EDT)

What do you consider short?

At what height would you consider someone short?

2 out of 5 of the New Atheists 5 horsemen are short (I count PZ Myers' self-dubbing of himself as the fifth horsemen). One of the persons who is most responsible for militant atheism in the 20th century - Lenin - was short. Dan Barker is short. Just admit it - militant atheism got short changed in the height department! If only Richard Dawkins was not a self-described agnostic! :) Conservative 22:03, 24 October 2014 (EDT)
