Anyhow, back on topic. Many religious organizations may in philosophy be misogynist, but in reality they are places that are dominated by women socially and they're simply used for social politicking which attracts a lot of women (and explains the preponderance of esfjs in such institutions ). Also, these same institutions act as social communities and are places where values that women are supposed to have from a religious viewpoint like humility are rewarded whereas they are not in the broader culture.
@marmie_dearest do you believe that there is such a thing a absolute intellectual authority (if only within a given field)?
On why atheism is not more popular among women, I believe it is because it is associated with despair and an ethical system that is dehumanizing. Both of these are very unattractive to people in general, but particularly to women looking for a mate.
