← Why Women Are Bound to Religion: An Evolutionary Perspective

andersemil's Avatar Jump to comment 3 by andersemil

I agree very much that religion can create an illusion of kinship and security to the feeble mind and that this will be a major reason for people to stick with religion even today. We have all heard of or know people who claim to have a personal relationship with Jebus and the likes, and people who claim they have received guidance, strength and even comfort from their invisible playmates. And, as the article states, it makes perfect sense why women generally would be more vulnerable to these delusions.
