Reminds me of how I encountered RQ/Glorantha a couple of years after giving up my Christian faith, and seeing the kind of stuff I would expect from a religion: the mythology, and the deep link to how our brains and feelings are wired. (I was raised a Dutch Protestant, mostly inspired by Calvin).

In my impression, not many of our (western) RW religions come close to the immanence of Gloranthan religion, and it's hard for me to judge others. (African witchcraft, Winti and Japanese spirit/ancestor worship appear to be close candidates). Most religion is a shared personal experience anyway.
