When an atheist says he or she can love, then such atheism is already more than halfway to belief in an almighty God.

Actually, poor people are more likely to be overweight/obese. The junk with all the extra fats, sodium, sugar etc. is cheaper than healthy food. In addition, in the inner cities, there are many "food deserts", where there are no real supermarkets with fresh produce and meats, just convenience stores with limited choices of preservative, sugar, fat and sodium-laden processed food. If that's your only choice, you are going to eat poorly.
Another interesting statistic is this:

People who are under-educated also tend to be poor, and they tend to have children who are subsequently under-educated as well-- and who end up ... poor.

And still another: the average level of education within the membership of any given religious brand, appears to correlate directly with how fundamentalist the religious-brand is.

That is-- the more fundie a church is, the **more** likely that it's membership is mostly (if not entirely) not-educated much, if at all.

And also that they are mostly poor.

And .... overweight too.

It all goes together like a sad little oppressive puzzle.

Religion has these beautiful (if empty) promises of magical wish-granting and other nonsense.

Who more gullible than someone who is desperately poor, not very educated, and living in horrid conditions too?

I feel sad for them.

In spite of all the education available on what is fattening and what is not, a person will eat whatever he wants, and do whatever he wants, he has free will to be fat if he wants to be. He can be a drunk, a homosexual, a thief or a saint.

It is the person who wants to follow Jesus and be a true Christian today, that person will put aside his selfish desires and try to make Jehovah God happy, to obey God rather than any man.

Do not be loaded down with over eating, drinking and anxieties of life. To overeat is a sin, same as over drinking and over worry about your life.

If you do not burn up by exercise the calories you take into your body, they will go into your fat storage, simple as that. Eat low carbohydrate foods, none made with sugar, wheat, corn or potatoes and your fat will be gone in no time.

No homosexuality is not a choice unless you are bi... which considering how much you like to talk about homosexuality you probably are. For a start we know that gay brains look like that of a straight woman which shows that who we like is innate.

"It is the person who wants to follow Jesus and be a true Christian today, that person will put aside his selfish desires and try to make Jehovah God happy, to obey God rather than any man." Right let's turn that on its head. God, who is in want of nothing, in need of nothing and at risk of nothing declares that the best thing a human can do, who is wanting, needing, at at risk, is to worship him. Why? God is set for life but we aren't. So why does God ask for something he does not need? Considering that the only unforgivable sin is to say OMG as it is blasphemy.

God is just a mardy little S***, hurting his feelings is wose than stabbing someone shows this God should be a little less selfish.

"Do not be loaded down with over eating, drinking and anxieties of life. To overeat is a sin, same as over drinking and over worry about your life." Over worrying is a SIN! Over worrying is the biggest sign that you want to take responsibility for your life, are you saying we should just go where ever the wind takes us!?

Nothing in your rant above, explains why **most** of you Genuine Christians™ are also ...

.... Genuinely Fat.

But we have shown one reason:***most** of your christian-types are also uneducated.

And it appears that a lack of education makes it more likely for a person to fall ...

.... for your lies.

The Scriptures are not talking to you, what makes you think God can tell you anything...you are not open to any agreement of truth.

The Scriptures were written to God's people who considered them his children, they were Jews and then Christian followers of Jesus his son, only a very few Jews and pagan Gentiles who did learn to know, love and serve Jehovah God, as Jesus taught. You do not know anything about the God of the Bible or what truth is.

You write nothing worth reading, just like hot air and smelly at that.

"The Scriptures are not talking to you, what makes you think God can tell you anything...you are not open to any agreement of truth." Wait are you saying that the only people open to Gods word are people who believe God's word?
"The Scriptures were written to God's people who considered them his children" Well I can't say you didn't answer my question this time...
"they were Jews and then Christian followers of Jesus his son, only a very few Jews and pagan Gentiles who did learn to know, love and serve Jehovah God, as Jesus taught." How did this happen?
"You do not know anything about the God of the Bible or what truth is." WHO THE F*** ARE YOU TALKING TO?

"You write nothing worth reading, just like hot air and smelly at that." Funny not once have you taken the time to refute post 141 even though I called you a coward, and said you should try and refute post 141 if you were not. No one has the right to say that someone is full of hot air in till they actually attack the B.S. So when have you responded to one of us when we make a argument.

Your observations are spot-on target.
I would say the vast majority of Genuine Christians™ are so overweight they could qualify as disabled.
They also die, on average, younger than non-Genuine Christians™(a group which includes your more liberal/moderate christians as well as others).
I once heard it said, as I was growing up, that a skinny preacher was likely up to no good....!
... and the commentator was deadly serious....

You are mistaken, your words are your hate, if you don't believe in something you don't talk about it, and you don't debate with those who do.

Religions are dying because they do not teach the truth.

Jehovah's witnesses are growing in numbers every week, and yet we are only a few compared to the billions who will perish at Armageddon.
Jesus said, only a few will find the road to everlasting life.

He also criticized the Jews for not killing their disobedient children according to Old Testament law. Mark.7:9-13 "Whoever curses father or mother shall die" (Mark 7:10 NAB)

Sounds like a sick and evil villan, this hero of yours?

So you cult leader told Jews to follow the barbaric laws of the OT, criticised them for not stoning their disobedient children to death, and told them to eat his flesh and drink his blood. Sounds more like a satanic cult than a religion if you ask me :)

Why do billions have to perish at Armageddon?

If only you knew of a compassionate all powerful god that could change this.
