Default Superstition

I just had an epiphany.

Whilst i am in no way religious i do adhere to pagan religious practises.
ie when i say touch wood i invariably actually touch wood.
WTF is all that about, I hate religion.....sneaky bstrds have lured me in without my knowing.

anyone else non religious/non believer etc who believes or partakes in superstitious acts, ie touching wood, ladders, umbrellas indoors and all that cack?

I hate superstition even more than religion, I once said 'oh shite they're going to score here' and a minute later man u scored against us and my mate went MENTAL blamingme for the goal.

Can I just say anyone who is superstitious is a wanker?

I really hate superstition and religion too but I do 'touch wood' (but none of the rest - avoiding ladders and 13 etc) but what really pisses me off is I just can't get out of the habit of mentioning god all the time - "for god's sake", "oh god", "Jesus Christ" etc etc.
