I Am Not Superstitious

    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 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.

    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 am not superstitious at all.  I will open an umbrella in the house, walk under a ladder, step on the cracks.  etc.   I used to be superstitious but now that I am older I know they are just silly old wives tales.  I love to read about different...

    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...
