You’ve seen them. 10 year old children that weigh over 100 pounds! Profoundly obese mothers at the mall food court—so fat that their form barely resembles anything human—feeding Big Macs and large orders of fries (they call ‘em vegetables) to their children, smiling giddily because they don’t have to prepare yet another dinner for their kids, which would cut into TV-watching time. It was only 10 years ago that these people were the exception rather than the norm. But now, they account for an alarming percentage of our population, destroying themselves but more importantly, the lives of their very own children by subjecting them to incredible illnesses, all because of their own low self-concept, their laziness and me-first attitude, or simply their lack of education.
Flash forward to the Bible’s Apocalypse, ATS’s wealth of info on 2012, Nostradamus’ predictions, and a plethora of other seers’ and saints’ pointing to the apocalyptic events headed for us in just a few short ticks.
Is there a connection between the sudden rise in obesity and these warnings of imminent disaster? Does God have a plan we haven’t even begun to fathom? When there is no food to be found, who will starve or survive? In that precarious interim between disaster and humanity’s foothold on rebuilding itself, will the obese be the ones who can bridge that gap when there is no food to be found and the rest of us are all starving to death?
When the dust clears, will they be the ones who went into 2012 fat and came out thin finding themselves the sole survivors of human kind? They say God works in mysterious ways. Will they be the ones stepping forth on a charred Earth, planting the seeds of a new Human future... all because they 'fueled up' beforehand?
...or will they just end up being large lumps of fat lying on the side of the road that we will have to shovel into a pit so we aren’t overrun by flies?

Sounds like someone just doesn't like "fat" people and decided to rant and try hiding it behind some other type of message.
Reminds me of this gym I used to work near around 10 years ago. They had this painting that spanned across their windows. It showed a UFO flying over a group of "fat" people and a group of "fit" people and they're all running away with the "fit" one's in the lead. It showed the aliens talking to each other with drool coming out of their mouths and saying:
"Go for the fat ones. They're easier to catch"
I took it personally because I suffered weight issues as a kid/teen. There was also this guy who used to stand outside the gym trying to get people to come in and he always made remarks to anyone who was slightly overweight.
I go down there one day while he's out and I'm on my break and stare at the window. He comes over after about 5 minutes and asks what I'm doing. Here's the conversation:
Me: "Isn't this false advertising?"
Gym Guy: "Excuse me"
Me: "This is false advertising"
Gym Guy (with a smug look on his face): "How exactly is it false advertising?"
Me: "Well if aliens exist and one day invade the Earth to abduct people as food as this painting implies, wouldn't they go after the one's who are nice and fit?"
Gym Guy just stands there
Me: "Think about it. You're an alien invading a planet and taking it's people for food. Which one you going to go after, the fat ones or the fit and meaty ones?"
Gym Guy still isn't saying anything
Me: "See...false advertising and if it were to ever happen, you'd be pretty screwed wouldn't you? (I laugh and left)
Painting was gone 3 days later
But would be funny if humanity's last hope are the clincally obese like my father who crawl from the ruins uninjured to reseed earth lol
