On superstition

The human being can hardly help itself from being superstitious. It knows for a fact that its knowledge of the world is limited and so too its intellectual capacities. How might it then, knowing these, be so bold as to claim that there is nothing beyond the ocular realms that might partake in the cause-and-effect of daily happenings. I imagine that even the greatest philosopher of our age has some trivial habit which he believes if he does not adhere to will incite the fearsome finger of misfortune.
