Atheist kids better at sports: study
Results of a study of 600 children conducted by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EHT) have shown that religion has an effect on sporting ability, with Muslim girls the least skilled.

Results showed that children with no religious background tend to be the most skilful athletes. These are followed by Protestants and Catholics. At the opposite end of the spectrum are Muslim children, who performed well below the average, especially girls.

Right on John. It's really a goofy belief to believe that Sunday is the Sabbath.

The children of atheists are bound to be better sportsmen, their religion (godless atheism) profanes the Sabbath Day. Therefore, because most sporting activities are practiced mostly on the Sabbath Day, most Christian families at least, would teach their children to stay away from an
intense commitment to any sporting activity, knowing full well that at some point in their lives it would have the propensity to lead them to sin (profane the Sabbath), even to apostatise. So the atheists will be better at sport, yes. But there are more important things in life, are there not?
If only there were not so many to oppose this view. Few are the visible Churches that teach its positve gain for body and soul or correct for its violations. Few are the heads of household that practise family worship, or catechize their posterity, giving the next generation an example, fewer still the Churches who have Pastoral oversight visits to encourage their members or provide the necessary instruction. Few are the Civil men who themselves do so in household or provide the peaceful kingdom 1 Timothy 2:2 that encourages such piety at home for the future of both God ordained institutions in our respective nations. Few who desire to pattern Ezek.

In my younger days I was a sportsman and my special area was long distance running, which I organised as well as proved very able in competition.

The suggestion that religion has anything to do with winning and losing is pure speculation.

Today of course sport has become an industry of mammon, producing and wearing all the right "go-faster" shoes and gear.

In my young days sport was a hobby which I enjoyed and was good at, even without the correct trainers on.
