    Well statistically men don't live as long as women. It's probably why whenever we're thinking of old people in church, there's more women in the pews than men because almost all the men died!

    In culture after culture, women are in charge of enculturating the young. That means that women would have to be in charge of treasuring the age old traditions, stories, etc. Remember, though, that we are speaking in broad generalities. There's plenty of exceptions on both sides.

    You are going to get int the "nature versus nurture" debate here.
    There are all sorts of variables involved here, and all sorts of reasons people (male or female, young or old) go to a church.
    Force of habit, socialization, appeasement of a family member's wishes, actual belief in the dogma, enjoys singing in the choir, business contacts, social pressures..........

    I suspect it has more to do with external factors than brain wiring.

    A lot of Indian holy men and devotees who were born as men started playing a female role en some even spontaneously grew breasts.
    The idea is that God is the ultimate male (creator) and compared to Him we are best all in a female subsmissive position as caring compassionate loving beings.
    I believe this was the also the case in many other traditions around the world until the strong cultural influence of Christianity supressed it.
