← Why Women Are Bound to Religion: An Evolutionary Perspective

Very interesting, and answers many of the questions I myself have asked. This may help explain why many (most ?) of the "visions" had by xians seem to be by women, rather than men. I suppose one could draw up a map of the distribution of male & female atheists across a country. I can imagine that one would see a marked bias towards female atheists in larger cities, as opposed to rural communities, where the support groups would be smaller, and much more likely to involve a local church. Men, on the other hand, would be much more free to be atheists, not needing support groups to the same extent. Therefore not so biased towards cities.
