History of Defy Superstition Day
On October 20, 1925, Walter Davenport’s article was published in The Christian Science Monitor. Davenport says that superstitions are like “foolish fears” because they make people think they are doing something wrong when they are not. He then explains where some superstitions come from: “the stories of witches and howling wolves may be traced back to men’s fears of unknown dangers lurking in the dark places — fears which were perhaps heightened by the fact that there were indeed wolves roaming about Europe at one time.”
What Are Some Common Superstitions That Go Against the Advice of Scientists?
There are many superstitions that go against the advice of scientists. For example, many people believe that holding a black cat will bring them bad luck. Others believe that it is unlucky to cross a river on a Friday night.
These superstitions may seem silly, but they can have serious consequences. For example, someone who believes in the black cat superstition may not take precautions when crossing a road. This could lead to a dangerous situation where they are hit by a car.
Scientists understand the importance of taking scientific advice when making decisions. This is why they often oppose superstitions. They know that these beliefs can lead to negative consequences for people and animals alike.
Why Are We Still Obsessed With These Superstitions?
Superstitions have been around for centuries, and they continue to be a part of our culture today. Some people believe that superstitions are a way of honoring the gods, while others view them as harmless fun. However, there is evidence to suggest that these beliefs may actually be harmful.
For example, some superstitions encourage people to avoid certain activities on Superstition Day. This can lead to social isolation and decreased productivity. In addition, some superstitions can cause physical harm. For example, it is believed that throwing salt over your shoulder will protect you from bad luck. However, this practice can actually lead to salt poisoning.
Ultimately, it is up to each individual to decide whether or not they believe in superstitions. But based on the evidence, it seems clear that they are not always harmless or helpful.
On September 13, 2022, the United States will celebrate Defy Superstition Day – a day to break away from common beliefs that can hold us back. This day is an opportunity for all of us to challenge ourselves and our preconceived notions about how the world works. Whether you are religious or not, this day is an important reminder that we can all be empowered by breaking free from negative thinking and superstitions. Let’s work together to create a society where everyone is able to defy superstition and live life in their own unique way!
