Superstition may be defined subjectively as the disposition or tendency to ascribe
phenomena which admit of natural explanation to occult or supernatural causes; or
objectively, it is any system of religious belief or practice which manifests such a tendency.
Superstition is excessive belief or credulity; it arises from the encroachment of
faith on the rights of reason and knowledge, and is applied in popular usage to various
forms of polytheism. It is an unreasonable belief in things or phenomena which,
although owing their origin to perfectly natural and logical causes, are attributed to
some supernatural force or power, or again, the natural results of these are distorted by
popular imagination into something fantastic.
