    Stupidstitions

    Let's leave the superstitions to the Dark Ages, a time when people can not explain events because of limited knowledge. We're living in a new world of information and rationality. The reason why you're financially broke is not because you didn't close the toilet cover that day...

    I Am Not Superstitious - Not Any, Have Never Been

    BUT THEY ALL ARE. VERY SUPERSTITIOUS - THEY BELIEVE IN DEVILS, GODS, ALIENS, GHOSTS, SUCCUBI, AND UNIMAGINABLE NUMBER OF THINGS. Some might even "exist" - BUT MOSTLY BECAUSE THEY MAKE THEM.

    It goes much deeper. People are generally only

    superstitious because they - of course, how could they not? - have some sense of the complexity of lifes interwoven threads which surround one. Because they don't have the guts to look deeply into all of this, they are superstitious instead. It's a cheap superficial way to...
