This is not simply from personal observation but from statistical studies that women are far less likely than men to be atheist. I wonder why this is and wanted some of your opinions??

I don't mean to jump into some stereotypical conclusions so I wanted to see what others thought. One thought that jumped to mind is maybe one factor may be the fact that women are more emotional creatures and use more of the emotional centers of their brain than men? And we know one powerful component of religion is not due to rational factors but to emotional factors..

I've wondered this as well...As a kid,I recall always seeing more women in church then men,even though women are more oppressed by religion than men.Seems strange.

It is baffling to me. I don't understand why women would believe in such a sexist and misogynistic belief system.
