Researchers recently conducted a study on paintings of the Last Supper and determined that Jesus and the Apostles have been getting hungrier as time goes by. They determined that the food portions in the paintings have been getting larger in the past 1000 years.

Is that a Big Gulp in Jesus' hand?

Study: Last Supper paintings supersize the food

Has even the Last Supper been supersized?

The food in famous paintings of the meal has grown by biblical proportions over the last millennium, researchers report in a medical journal Tuesday.

Using a computer, they compared the size of the food to the size of the heads in 52 paintings of Jesus Christ and his disciples at their final meal before his death.

If art imitates life, we're in trouble, the researchers conclude. The size of the main dish grew 69 percent; the size of the plate, 66 percent, and the bread, 23 percent, between the years 1000 and 2000.

Supersizing is considered a modern phenomenon, but "what we see recently may be just a more noticeable part of a very long trend," said Brian Wansink, a food behavior scientist at Cornell University.

This must be a conspiracy by McDonald's and Burger Thing to promote the super size craze. With even Jesus promoting over-eating, is it any wonder our kids are getting fatter.

Not sure its a conspiracy but it is odd, is this subconsciously motivated? I think it might be a psychological desire by those that repaint it to give Jesus a more grand last supper, think about it, no one wants to see Jesus' last meal be some celery sticks and a hot pocket

Give the guy a triple-decker burger, he deserves to indulge, he is the Savior after all

This is an odd observation.

Star and a flag.
The fact this is a far less controversial thread, than I am you use to seeing from you Anthem. Does add to the oddity.

I tried REAL HARD to make a conspiracy out of this but the mods sent it to BTS anyway.

It's interesting, just not ATS interesting I guess.

I like to post some light hearted stuff now & then. I can't spend ALL my time pissing off atheists & stuff.

My flame proof suit is starting to get holes in it.
Maybe when I get it mended, I'll be back to my old self.
