    Depends where you are, I think. In the US, it seems to be the fat rural conservatives that are big (in every sense) on religion. In Europe, religious people tend to be more ascetic than the average.

    :D

    A group I used to be a part of was mostly atheist, and the majority were quite thin.

    It took til post #3 to become political.
    And RF being RF, it tends towards anti-conservative.

    Why would there be any correlation at all between atheism and weight?

    Though I am the one with the profile status posted, “dreaming of garlic bread.”

    Coincidence?! Perhaps not.

    1) Atheists don't eat kosher or halal.

    2) As a result, atheists can eat bacon.

    Therefore, atheism leads to weight gain.

    They're all skin and bones. With no God to provide them with any food, what else would you expect?

    Who....me?
    I have some things in common with the left, & some with the right.
    And I bitterly oppose some things on the left, & some on the right.

    But back to the OP, this atheist needs to lose a few pounds.

    This post is making me hungry. I’m gonna make some pasta, anyone want some? Atheists only, of course. And honorary atheists I suppose, I have cards to hand out if you’re cool.

    Edit: I’m probably not kidding, I have some mushroom alfredo that’s gonna go bad if it’s not used and I do happen to have broccoli. So… dinner plans are made!

    I vote your imagination.

    It’s your imagination that leads to weight gain.

    It is that too.
    But anti-conservatism dominates.
    My authority....
    A decade+ of observation.
    And I once attended a large public school.

    Does this mean the opposite of OP’s imagination leads to weight loss? This is a gold mine waiting to happen. Quick, we need something that has no imagination. Have OP watch literally anything Hollywood has produced in years.
