Why are women (slightly more) religious?

Are women more likely to be stupid/gullible? That seems to be the assumption that the ungenerous of us might make when considering the 7% gap between men and women when it comes to religious affiliation….

… that was discussed recently in an ARIS poll. Earlier, I had pointed to Stephanie Zvan’s comments on this, and now I see that Pandagon is all over it too. I just hope the ladies at Pandagon don’t just buy the bill of goods or fall for the old snake oil routine or anything.

Creation (the movie) Now Has US Distributor

The new film about Darwin, Creation, will be distributed in the United States after all, according to a story in the Hollywood Reporter (September 24, 2009). The film is expected to be released by Newmarket Films in December 2009. Earlier the producer of the film, Jeremy Thomas, lamented to the Telegraph (September 11, 2009), “It has got a deal everywhere else in the world but in the US, and it’s because of what the film is about. … It is unbelievable to us that this is still a really hot potato in America.” A few days later, however, NBC Bay Area (September 15, 2009) reported that a distribution deal was imminent.
