Should we consider superstition believers a historical and traditional practice of their ancestors, or a mythical belief, per se, mind over matter that cures where science have not yet debunk as of today? Hindus mostly believe in superstition. In Guyana, superstition is widely a profession for the Bush doctor who deal with Bush medicines, and the witch doctor that perform healing rituals.
Amazingly, this belief and practice is still carried out in America among families who still follow this tradition very strongly. Once again I have to touch on Hindus because most recently a Hindu priest "aka" pandit, carried out a ritual for a family who believes something strange has happen to them.
Whatever the family claimed has nothing to do with sickness or health, but because three of the family members have lost their jobs. The pandit open "book" and told them that the neighbor had thrown "something" in the family yard, and that he has to perform a ritual to get rid of it.
The ritual was performed and did not yield any positive result three months after.
Is this a coincidence that three members of one family lost their job suddenly?
Was the pandit advise and actions deemed improper?
How can we be sure if the neighbor did throw something and what is It?
Is this a belief that
cause people to spend unnecessary resources and steer them away from God or prayer?
Do we have folks on GNI that actually believe in superstitions?
