My religious exposure was positive and more humanist and psychology than anything. Got me interested in psychology actually. Took some classes to be a child psychologist (because the professor who taught quantum mechanics was on sabattical – and this is no joke) but ran out of money so never finished.
Still, the child psych courses were very useful. It’s hard for me NOT to see humanity as overgrown children. Adulthood seems to be mostly mythological honestly smile emoticon
