I'd like to remove the sentence, "On the other hand, PZ Myers and a significant amount of other New Atheism leaders, seem to have demonstrated a lack of a full appreciation of the importance of nutritional science, exercise science and the latest findings of medical science," since it seems overly speculative. All we have are general correlations between nutritional science/exercise science and weight issues, but these are (I presume) aggregated over large data sets, and the particular reasons why a person has weight issues may or may not indicate "lack of full appreciation" for relevant science. Any objections? ---DennisR 12:01, 13 August 2011 (EDT)

The ex-atheist Richard Dawkins has publicly indicated that he is an agnostic (see: Richard Dawkins and agnosticism). Since Dawkins is an an agnostic and not an atheist, this would mean that 3 out of 4 of the atheist founders of the New Atheism movement had excess weight issues (At a 75% of individuals overweight population, this would make atheist founders of the New Atheist movement one of the most overweight populations in the history of the world in terms of the percentage of people overweight).[1][2] For more information, please see: New Atheism leadership's problem with excess weight.
