It’s concerning for women that they are statistically and significantly more superstitious and religious than men. All of the credible research conducted indicates that superstition or prayer does not effect the outcomes of events. Rubbing a Lucky Rabbits Foot is equally as ineffective as praying for a sick relative. And so it would seem reasonable that we never see amputees recover their missing limb or a train wreck restored no matter how much superstition or prayer is invoked.
And if you are looking for a reason for the pay inequity between the sexes the factor is the same as the difference between superstitious beliefs of the sexes; Men are paid twenty percent more and are also twenty percent less superstitious and religious than women.
Reason as you may remember is the philosophy of cause and effect. So if you are a woman you are statistically twenty percent less likely to use and believe in reason, and so trust more in magical thinking. So it’s for practicle reasons and not because of sexual discrimination for your lower pay.
It’s also noteworthy that in math and science, men win over 95% of Nobel Prizes. Its highly unlikely that this is not a reflection of the habits of female minds and is not sexism. And rubbing the rabbits foot or praying isn’t going to do a darn thing for you, and again, all the research says so and I guess this is what makes life so unfair…the quality of thought?
