<quoted text>Dude. I said that my conclusion about religion in prison would not hold if it could be shown that there is any sort of systemic bias towards incarcerating higher numbers of christians, similar to the bias towards putting more blacks in prison and less whites. However, you have shown no such thing.
The only bias of Christians inmates is the lies coming out of their mouths.

You've offered no evidence at all to support your opinion. None.

Here, this shows that 72% of them state they are religious on the Penal entrance form, but only 54% ACTUALLY consider themselves religious and only 33% are practicing religion.(still sounds a bit high to me)

Population 12/31/95), while 72% affirmed affiliation with religious institutions (determined through answers to the question on "Religious Background" on the Penal entrance form) only 54% of Federal and State Prisoners actually consider themselves religious, and 33% can be confirmed to be practicing their religion. This is demonstrated by attendance records at religious services, which averaged anywhere between 30% and 40%, depending upon the time of year and the institution in question (and who was preaching). These figures are comparable to the national average as establish by the Gallup organization.[Source: Response to "Christians vs atheists in prison investigation".]

Again, no room for calling me ignorant.

"You'll" means "you will", so when I asked you if I will, you now say it's "I do"....

O_o

I guess you meant to write "you'do"...

Actually, it can and has been tested with science, that's how testing works. You check the evidence and see where it points, and it doesn't point to prayer being anything more than empty words.
Do you know how they see electrons? Well, they don't see electrons, nothing can see them because they don't reflect light and most too fast to see. So how do they get pictures of them? They leave out a material that electrons interact with, they leave "trails" as they move through and along that material, these trails can be seen ... tada, now they have photographs of electrons. Over simplified explanation, but the identical concept to how they have proven prayer doesn't work.
As many studies as you can pull up that "prove" that prayer doesn't work, there are at least as many studies that show that prayer does work. Take a few minutes and look those up.

Scientific studies also show that the attitude of the one doing the searching, predicts what he/she will find. Approach the idea that prayer does work, and you'll find that it will. Approach with a skeptical attitude, and of course, you'll find it won't.

Faulty premise means faulty conclusion.

Is there an echo in here? I JUST said it won't work. He has no faith in God. God's not gonna answer a prayer for him or try to convince him.

James 4:3

You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions.

===

Hebrews 11:6

And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.

===

Deuteronomy 6:5

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.

===

Acts 3:22

Moses said,‘The Lord God will raise up for you a prophet like me from your brothers. You shall listen to him in whatever he tells you.

That the second statement is false is proof of the still existing racism in this country.
Since religion isn't outwardly visible, it's not the same.
I bet that if all atheists had to wear big red A's on our backs, we'd have a larger percentage than we do in jail.
Oh no....

Another liberal blaming black crime on white racism....

Well, you'll be happy to know you finally wore me down. I took the plunge, and I'm now a Jehovah's Witness. This is so exciting! Gotta run, I need to pick up a couple dozen white shirts and black ties and a thousand copies of The Watchtower. Peace unto you, or whatever the hell new converts are supposed to say.
Don't do it!!

Be different. Wear a black shirt and white tie....

Why are you so in love with that website?

It offers no evidence, no proof, no studies, no history, no records.

Just opinion.

Did a freethinker teach you how to freethink as long as you freethink like the teacher?

I didn't know there is one. Please send me the link so I may purchase it.

Or more accurately, just more non-answers.

Why do you try to mislead others with your unfounded claims?

C'mon - we saw the honesty once, got anymore in ya?
