BIBLE THUMPERS AND RELIGION

It truly amazes me how many people are becoming so religious like, Christians, or Muslims after comming to prison. I mean, Why all of a sudden? I don’t think they were this way before they got locked up. But now, because they went to prison, all of a […]

ATHEISM IN PRISON

One thing I’ve noticed with Christians in prison. Not all of them, but I would say probably the majority. They use it as a device to make themselves feel better about what they’ve done in their lives. Instant “forgiveness” by just reciting some magic words and reading a […]

ATHEISM IN PRISON

One thing I’ve always found about people who are on the fence, and come over to atheism, is that they didn’t understand much about the positions of it. They maybe had this vague opinion that atheists were childish people, rebelling against authority. But when they start learning, they […]

ATHEISM IN PRISON

  Yesterday I was at work having a discussion with two religious guys (both of a different religion), and we were talking about how people use their beliefs to find a good thing and use it to change. We all agreed that all three of us had done […]

ATHEISM IN PRISON

Last night, a stranger introduced himself to me and then asked if I wanted to join a Christian event. I told him no thank you, I’m an atheist. Looking back, I was a little curt with him, maybe even a little rude. This had nothing to do with […]

ATHEISM IN PRISON

It’s difficult to get guys in prison to want to change, to want to take responsibility and the initiative to better themselves. As I’ve said, I think religion actually gets in the way of this because the “good” is defined by a holy book, and all too often, […]

ATHEISM IN PRISON

One problem I have with people using religion to try to better themselves in prison is that it doesn’t automatically result in change. In fact, often times, the Christian message is (or becomes, rightly or wrongly): You’re just great the way you are. God loves you. Now just […]

ATHEISM IN PRISON

I’ve noticed that religious guys in prison are kind of like religious guys everywhere: they’re out-and-out victims of the confirmation bias. That is, they find a belief that seems to work for them, and run with it. No attempt is made to look at this belief critically. If […]

ATHEISM IN PRISON

One of the most common misconceptions about being an atheist in prison is this: “Oh, you just want to be an atheist because then you don’t have to face divine justice for your crime.” Nonsense. It’s not that I want to avoid justice; in fact a big part […]

SOCIETY WITHOUT GOD

Any religious person who thinks that their religion is necessary for a good, civilized society, or that only belief in an ultimate judging deity leads to moral behavior, should check out Society Without God, by Phil Zuckerman. It’s a study of what are probably the two most atheistic […]

ATHEISM IN PRISON

I wish that an intellectual position had the same power as a religious belief. Religious beliefs get you special benefits, special exemeptions. Especially here in prison. And of course, the religious people snivel when something doesn’t go their way. For example, Jews and Muslims have succeeded in getting […]
