  • I wouldnt say all religions no, i would say just pagan and wicca. I think Christianity and superstition are far from related one is real the other is not end of story. To me it seems as if pagan and wicca are just people playing make believe.

  • Islam is not glorified superstition.. it is the Word of God.

  • All ancient civilisations had their creation myths. The stories in the Old Testament Book of Genesis are but a reflection of much older myths that were told in ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia from at least 3000 BC. Indeed, the further back we go, the more dominant the creation myth becomes. There are so many similarities between religions of today and ancient religions no longer accpeted or practiced that it's hard for me to take it all seriously. I feel religions all have 'their time in the sun' and then are replaced by a different one.

  • I think either people need to believe in an afterlife and/or need someone or something to follow......OR they have experienced something they can't explain and attribute it to a god or gods. Neither of these reasons would convince me to believe. Just because I want something or don't understand something, doesn't mean it's real.

    The dictionary def. of superstition is: a belief or practice resulting from ignorance, fear of the unknown, trust in magic or chance, or a false conception of causation.

    To me this is the definition of religion too LOL.

  • No, I don't agree with that. Superstition can be such a vague and wide range of things. Like don't walk under a ladder, or don't step on a crack, etc. Religion is completely different. It's about what a person's true beliefs are no matter what they may be. Christianity is God's Written Word. I'm sure most of the other religions wouldn't want to be compared to superstition either...
