Richard Dawkins, obesity has enveloped your marketing campaign!

Stenger and Christopher Hitchens.[1] The four most prominent writers of the New Atheist movement are Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens and Daniel Dennett. 3 out of 5 of the founders of the New Atheism movement have had issues with being overweight as can be seen HERE and HERE and HERE Please see Atheism and obesity for further details.
