I agree that supernatural beliefs influence one's fear of death. As education and literacy go up, religiosity goes down, and as a result i dont find this finding very shocking. And with the social structure historically pushing women away from scientific avenues of education, I would also wager the "best antidote" for supernatural beliefs is an understanding of the natural world, which science delivers like no other academic pursuit. But times are changing, and women are filling labs at a rate unseen before and i suspect that the difference based on sex will diminish, but the level of education will still correlate quite well.
