I dislike the mocking correlation some try to draw between believing in things and being childish.
“I don’t believe in ghosts. I’m not a child.”
(Or “ghosts aren’t real. are you a child?”)
Often said with disdain like ‘child’ is something inherently negative.
Ironically childhood beliefs in things like Santa Claus are perpetuated by lying adults… and later done away with by honest adults, which is possibly a crushing blow to childlike innocence.
Beliefs are just that, whether it’s ghosts or gods, and can be formed at any time.
