If it weren’t for psychology America would be much less religious. A lot of the millennials’ move away from Christianity can be seen as a result of them being resistant to strains of psychology that worked on the older generation. We are in touch with our thought processes so when someone tries to get us all emotional about God it’s harder for us to believe there is an actual entity besides us involved. “Your feelings are from you”, we’ve been told. God just seems contrived to us, as if someone projected their fantasy upon an infinite slate. But anything we make up is going to comprise our greatest fantasies as well as our worst fears. But things that impose themselves violently on our senses are a lot more mundane and boring.
