  • Nope, but I believe in self-fulfilling prophecy. Meaning people who expect the worst on full moons and Friday the 13th will get it because they've put themselves in such a distracted state they're guaranteed to make bad things happen.

  • No, not really, but I don't like those weird statues in my house. Just because they're weird.

  • A little bit. It's silly, but I try to avoid cracks, I won't walk under ladders, and I never say "If I'm lying may God strike me dead".

  • Nope, I love that Jesus said that the Truth would set us free, free from superstitions and things taught to keep people down from fear....

  • Nothing has power unless you believe it does. I know there are gemstones and certain metals out there that are supposed to help with things like arthritis and that type stuff, which, ok maybe those work. But as far as curses and those type things, they only have the power you give them. And, trust, i have stepped on several craks and my mother is still amazingly broken back free.

  • Yes, about alot of things. I believe that many superstitions are BASED in fact. Not that they are word for word on the button, but that there is fact behind them. Like opening an umbrella inside is bad luck - Well, yeah, it's bad luck for the poor shmuck that gets stuck in the eye... Or walking under a ladder is bad luck... Sure is for the guy that falls off of it or the lady with paint in her hair. So, I stick to them, if for no other reason than if I'm wrong, I loose nothing, if I'm right, no one gets hurt... It's all good to me!
