Fun fact: Atheists in prison

What are the statistics according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons when comparing atheist population against theist population behind bars? Let’s take a look at the numbers provided by Denise Golumbaski, Research Analyst Federal Bureau of Prisons:

Is it me or does it seem that we infidels are the ones that seem to know more about morals?

(It should be noted that most people without religion are more likely to be white, less likely to come from poverty and less likely to be imprisoned)

About spagmonster

The spagmonster is an ex fundy who was raised as a conservative Christian. His father was a preacher and the owner of the churches he would attend when growing up, so he got to see everything from the inside. After being exposed to real world knowledge and science, the spagmonster slowly started to become a non believer in mainstream religions until he started this blog. That´s when he sat down and thought ¨Huh... I think I´m an atheist¨. The deconversion process was complete. Cheers!

  1. As much as I’d like to take this at face value (as an atheist), you have to consider that calling yourself Christian could earn you some major points with the parole board, as well as letting you take a break from prison rape to go to church (which is good relative ONLY to prison rape). Remember, this isn’t a mind reading device they use. They only ask the people what they believe.
