WDP — Superstitious

Are you superstitious?

The short answer is no. Now for the longer answer.

Being superstitious means believing in things that are not real or possible (i.e., superstitions). And what are superstitions? Superstitions are an attempt to explain events or phenomena that cannot be explained by science or logic. They are not based on reason or knowledge. They are often widely held but unjustified beliefs in supernatural causation leading to certain consequences of an action or event, or a practice based on such beliefs.

Why am I not superstitious? I think of myself as a logical, rational, and reasonable person. I am not ruled by emotions but by facts, observations, and evidence. My beliefs are based upon reason and knowledge.

I don’t have anything against people who are superstitious. Hey, whatever floats your boat, right? Just don’t try to force your superstitions down my throat. And by all means, don’t attempt to legislate your superstitions into law.

    I firmly believe that on full moon days there are a lot more crazy drivers on the road but I guess that falls into irrational observations than superstitions.
