Fitness and conspiracy theories: True Fitnessthinker?
Have you thought about a fitness lifestyle?
Have you been accused of being a part of some vast (or, not so vast) anti-atheist conspiracy for being concerned with health and fitness?
Well, I have: welcome to my world.
Indeed, I was about to make reader’s of True Freethinker privy to my fitness webpage when along came some rather odd news.
The folks over at rationalwiki are an interesting bunch. Particularly, judging by their discussions in their forums they are the sort of atheists who replace concocting any sort of response to facts with ridicule. Indeed, why get confused by facts when you can just as easily elbow your buddy in the ribs and have a laugh? Sadly, they appear to possess a hearty dose of zeal without knowledge, often embark upon self-congratulatory school yard level besmirchments of all with whom they disagree and make an issue out of utterly anything, everything and nothing.
They even attempted to get Conservapedia to drop any references to my work (see here, here, here, here, etc. for examples) because they found out that someone over there is a Mormon and I have criticized Mormon theology. Of course, Conservapedia knows better than to shun be on all issues simply because I disagree with one of their folks on one issue.
Perhaps they are living out the text of the Bible that states, “If the dead are not raised, let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die” 1 Corinthians 15:32 and “the enemies of the cross of Christ, whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame—who set their mind on earthly things” Philippians 3:18b-19.
Well, the latest conspiracy theory over at rationalwiki is that Conservative has “inspired” me to start my fitness related webpage. They even refer to me, Conservative (who wrote the main atheism article for Conservapedia) and Shock of God as “some kind of three musketeers of godbotting, egging each other on to even more dizzy heights of crazy”—this is the elbow in the ribs approach. This is also evidence of atheistic anthropocentrism: Ten Commandments in government property must be there in order to annoy atheists, someone saying, “God bless you” after an atheist sneezes must be a taunt, and now, writing about fitness must be a way to get at them as well.
In any regards, no, I am not writing about fitness just to shove it in the faces of atheists. The bodies of believers are the temples of the one true living God, YHVH, and we must care for that temple, clean that temple and sculpt that temple.
Enjoy and…if you put on an aluminum foil hat, the black helicopters that are piloted by Big Foot won’t be able to find you ;-)
