    There are many differences (I assume you mean in humans). Sexual dimorphism of humans includes different overall size, proportions, and brain/thinking differences and abilities. This is expected because the evolutionary pressures on the sexes are different (due to the differential in offspring cost).

    Here is an overview: Sex differences in humans - Wikipedia

    Is that the official Catholic Church view? That the differences are because of evolution?

    Well, they accept evolution, as long as the 'soul' is left out of it.

    So the Pope and all other Catholics are theistic evolutionists and see absolutely no conflict between evolution and the Bible? Weird! I was recently taking classes at a Catholic Church and the Bible was being put forth as the Word of God. How do they fit Genesis in with the evolution idea? You can't have it both ways. How do they fit all that into the evolution scheme? The are claiming that Jesus descended from animals? They are also saying that Jesus was deluded because he believed the creation account? LOL!

    Catholic church's point of view is; it is not wise to deny well evidenced science. Tends to cause a loss of credibility in putting fanny's in the seats.

    Calling quackery science doesn't magically make it so. Neither does calling things evidence magically make them evidence.

    Neither do all scientists and knowledgeable persons agree with you:

       


    BTW
    The Catholic Church is historically notorious for doctrinal leniency towards paganism when deemed to have been convenient. So its present lenient doctrinal policies involving compromise isn't surprising.

    Are you calling the Catholic church quacks?

    Furthermore, calling well evidenced science quackery, because it brings you comfort, doesn't make it so.

    Well evidenced to atheists!
    I am calling the description of a Christian saying that Jesus was deluded about Genesis or was lying and that he descended from lower animals quackery.

    As I understand it and aside from rare "footnotes," male and female humans differ from each other wrt chromosomal differences (XX vs. XY), genitalia and reproductive organ differences, some other anatomical differences (in hip bone, numbers of muscle bundles, wrt breasts), "comparative bell-curve" differences in neuron firing numbers between vs. within brain hemispheres, hormonal differences (depending on age), typically relative body hair differences and relative voice tone differences (post-puberty), typically recognizable body shape differences, often though not necessarily wrt body fat distribution and facial shape. Obviously males do not experience the same physiological processes females do in pregnancy, birthing, and breast feeding.

    Any such physiological, bodily differences aside, I would suggest culture-specific mores and gender roles may play a role in physiology (e.g., affecting emotions, hence the immune system; possibly epigenetics, nutrition, lifestyle, stress, advantages, and so on).

    As to the Christian religion (or what at the moment I can think of as such from my perspective), one wonders if a consequence of doctrine concerning the Imago Dei and marriage is the suggestion/proposition that there are differences in the non-material aspect of males versus females (although clearly both males and females fall under the rubric of "human" and Imago Dei), that is in the soul or spirit. Are marital role differences partly shaped by slight variation in male versus female souls? But I do not have sufficient information to offer anything much in the way of support or refutation perhaps save self-awareness.

    And how do you know what Jesus said or didn't say about Genesis?

    Better yet, why not go full hog and ask me how can I even be sure that Jesus existed?

    Versa-vice! Do you believe beans come from rice?

    Genesis 5:2
    He created them male and female and blessed them. And he named them "Mankind" when they were created.
