Is it foolish to be superstitious?
I think so. Any sense of omen or portent may well interfere with a person’s ability to detect the correct information that a situation typically presents. This is not to invalidate the strong intuitions that many others besides myself feel. I merely want to assign the correct magnitude to such premonitions.
However much superstition stems from the protoconscious and syllogistic bicameral mind, maintaining a steadfast adherence to such manifest self-delusion represents a serious departure from scientific method.
Do I still maintain superstitious practices? I will honestly answer, yes. But I am increasingly less than willing to admit the validity of unexamined predictions, AKA horoscopes.
So, let’s hear it. Are humans still unjustifiably bound to potentially unreliable data by their voluntary practice of superstition?
