← Why Women Are Bound to Religion: An Evolutionary Perspective

In fact, it was the opposite in my case, as my father was the religious party in our household, and my mother was decidedly luke warm.

What does surprise me, and I have found even with intelligent well educated women, is their predisposition to believe in astrology, pseudo-science, pseudo-medicine, and the "spiritual". I have never managed to get my head around it. Perhaps it is down to different wiring in our brains, or are some women more susceptible to trying to see what they perceive is beyond the physical world?

Anyway, it is always fun to see the faces of anybody, male or female, when I reply to their "what sign are you?" as "Uranus".

EDIT: My apologies to the more rational women who visit this site :)
