RE: Why there aren't more female atheists...
It's the emotions for sure. Women (generalizing) 'feel' things more. A common phrase in church (and elsewhere) is 'women's intuition' which is supposed to 'guide' the man's decision as head of the household. Christy friends are always saying, "I feel it in my heart!" when they make decisions.

Emotions are one tool we use to navigate our problem solving and decision making thoughts. I read a study on how much humans tend to use this tool. In one of the case studies they observed surgeons during surgery and interviewed them after. When complications arise the surgeon has to make a fast decision. There are many options but sometimes the surgeon would chose an option that was less ideal. When asked why at first, most often the female surgeons used their emotion to describe their decision. "I felt it was bad to do opt A" or "opt B stitch just seemed more appropriate". When they went over the video footage they realized there were logical reasons such as the blood was too blue or the flesh too thin or whatever, but the feeling was the quickest root and surpassed the logical thinking. They noted that the successful surgeries were pretty equal between the different thought processes.

When I was a believer this is what helped me leave, ironically. My feelings didnt match the others in my community so I was forced to look for evidence to find the truth. Otherwise I think I fear I'd still be in my happy little love bubble I was raised in. Now I'm in my happy little I love reality bubble, and I know why I love! Big Grin

Luckily it's a small group here that think they are the new and improved Beavis and Butthead. At least Beavis and Butthead were, what. 14 year olds? Easier to take than 30, 40, 50 year olds that still think it's funny or appealing.

Did that involve a van, a bag, and some rope? Consider

RE: Why there aren't more female atheists...
There are, statistically, biochemical and brain differences between male and female humans.

There are, probably more importantly, differences in socialization between the sexes.

It is not surprising to me that there are not more women on this forum.
I am very happy that we have the awesome ones we do.


We seem to have ever had only one female troll, absols. Or not.

I think the jury is still out...on everything about absols except for being hard to understand.
