    Old Wives Tales

    I am not a superstitious person but I have heard quite a few of these in my lifetime.  The bold are the ones' I've heard.  Any additional tales you've heard I didn't mention? Don't tickle an infants feet; it will make them stutter when they get old enough to...

    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...

    Why!

    I just don't see the point. I've walked under ladders, I have 2 black cats, I've accidentally broken a couple of mirrors....none of it has brought me bad luck. I think it just tends to be coincidence.

    Not At All

    I'm getting tired of people asking me to

    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...

    I guess this answers a few questions I've been asked. Admittedly, it's difficult and little hypocritical to appeal to Zodiac when you profess to be non-superstitious. But I can see...
