I think it probably really is 50/50. It’s who wants stand up and talk about, go on shows about it, go on conferences and speak about it, you know, who is intellectually active about it. It’s more of a guy thing. -Michael Shermer
Shermer said exactly that …(order flipped)… women are too stupid to do nontheism. Unbelieving in God is thinky work, and women don’t do thinky, because “that’s a guy thing.”
It’s all there—women don’t do thinky, they don’t speak up, they don’t talk at conferences, they don’t get involved—it’s “a guy thing,” like football and porn and washing the car. –Ophelia Benson
Thus, this whole debate has been a little reminder to myself to always check an author’s sources and to distrust those who don’t link to primary material. Even when the author is a fellow skeptic.
Update: Read my next post in this series entitled Shermer, it's not a guy thing here.
