You just made those up so they hold no weight in reality.

If about 16% of Adult Americans are Atheist/Agnostic and only .2% of the people in jail are that's a difference of 15.8

If about 78% are Christian (I got that off Wikipedia so take that how ever you like) and the 76% or so that I counted in that chart are Christian, then that's a difference of only 2%. Therefore, you are statistically more likely to go to prison if you are Christian.

My opinions are biased. The statistics are not.
I'm talking about atheists, not atheists and agnostic.

You are also misreading your statistics. First of all, you can't take away the percent of christians in a jail and the percent in the world. You have to find the actual amount and subtract it from the actual amount (e.g 50 christians in jail 10000 in the world)
I don't suffer from insanity...
I enjoy every moment.
