  1. Why men don't like church? Beer for the men and religion for the women, as the old saying goes.

  2. The 'why men don't like church' thing is fascinating. I guess this explains why one historic church ended up with a perfectly pure Queen of Heaven to love instead.

    I do sometimes wonder if Jesus had male disciples purely because it was the men of the world who had lost the plot and needed taming and retraining! :)

  3. On the cognitive faults thing, I am currently reading 'Nudge' by Thaler and Sunstein, which looks at these things well in the context of what it calls libertarian paternalism.
    Think you would find it interesting, Sam...
