WHAT IS THE PURPOSE?
—“Interesting. What do you think is the purpose of religion?”—@HHBenedictXVII
The training of intuition by Myth, Ritual, and Repetition which as a consequence produces interpersonal Regularity and personal Mindfulness, by reduction of need for comprehension of increasingly complex information where we have increasing limits to agency, in complex polities.
Hence the distribution of religiosity vs rationality by intelligence and agency. Humans, esp women, have vulnerability to neuroticism (‘worry’, stress) if they lack agency.
Intelligence provides agency.
Moral behavior remains constant.
