Who is faking: women, or men? :: An Economist in Paradise

Faseer Sheik Rahem writes:
Bryan Caplan points to a fascinating survey by Rodney Stark and Alan Miller on the difference between men and women in their religious beliefs. Two striking facts emerge : (1) across all cultures, women are more religious than men, (2) in the least traditional cultures (i.e. those who approve of single motherhood, have with a high abortion rate, low fertility, and high female labor force participation) the gap between men and women is wider. How can this be explained?
Read all of Rahem's post to get a possible answer. It does have to do with faking.
