Two of the major risk factors for becoming obese according to the Mayo Clinic are poor dietary choices and inactivity, thus given the above cited Gallup research, it appears as if non-religious are more prone to becoming obese than very religious individuals. The Bible declares that gluttony is a sin. Furthermore, the Bible declares the physical body of Christians to be temples of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, it is not surprising that many very religious Christians would leave healthy lives.No, I heard it at Conservaepedia first. Then Skepchick. Then Pharyngula.

Whether it is a failure to understand pattern seeking or not seeing the major problem with uncontrolled, unblind research her posts demonstrate a complete lack of understanding basic scientific concepts. If it was a parody, I guess it was a good one. But it has run it's course. Her blogs are off my reader. I'll just have to ignore what she posts on Uncommon Descent.
All right, before I get another email yes I am aware that she who must not be named had something to say about me. No, I will not respond. When the putative parody is so good you feel like you are watching a Joaquin Phoenix movie it is just best to let it go. If it is a parody, then she managed to infiltrate Uncommon Descent and show how incredibly dense intelligent design creationists can be. If it isn't, then it was the greatest own-goal in history.
