    Do you believe in superstitions

    From Wikipedia:
    Superstition is a credulous belief or notion, not based on reason, knowledge, or experience. The word is often used pejoratively to refer to folk beliefs deemed irrational. This leads to some superstitions being called "old wives' tales". It is also commonly applied to beliefs and practices surrounding luck, prophecy and spiritual beings, particularly the irrational belief that future events can be foretold by specific unrelated prior events.
    So, do you believe in superstitions?
    Would you refuse to pass under a ladder?
    Spit when you see a black cat?
    Spend 7 years under your bed after breaking a mirror?

    Do you find any sense in superstitions?
    "The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis."

    Dante Alighieri

    I wonder what the likelihood of this thread devolving into a pro/anti religion argument is..

    No. I will never spend my life cringing in fear of inconsequential events. In fact, my roommate has a black cat and ever since I moved in, my life has only gotten better.

    I don't believe in them, but I do find them to be alot of fun.
