Atheists with Disabilities: A Neglected Minority in Religion and Rehabilitation Research

You don’t say!

Abstract: Despite the recent focus on religion and spirituality in health and rehabilitation, the experiences of committed atheists have largely been neglected. Existing studies documenting the association between spirituality and health outcomes often fail to include a nonreligious comparison group in their study methodologies. In this brief commentary, the author cites the need for more research involving committed nonbelievers, while acknowledging that sampling difficulties may make such research extremely difficult to conduct.
