No, not in the unlucky number or salt over my shoulder sense. I do, however, believe unexplained phenomena exists, analagous to the universe's dark matter or sub-atomic particles: For a long time such theories were dismissed but are now accepted matter-of-fact.
2. What extremes have you heard of someone going to in the name of superstition?
There was a woman in England who set herself on fire to cleanse the ghost in her skin. I think that was labeled a case of schizophrenia for good reason.
3. Believer or not, what's your favorite superstition?
I derive a thrill from walking under ladders.
4. Do you believe in luck? If yes, do you have a lucky number/article of clothing/ritual?
No, don't believe in luck per se. No lucky numbers, objects, or rituals. As a Christian I respond to serendipity and luck from a different perspective.
5. Do you believe in astrology? Why or why not?
Nah, but I have fun reading horoscopes once in a while. And a friend of mine is into some book by Linda Goodman that profiles me in a way that is thoroughly uncomfortable. Well, uncomfortable in that watered-down, so meaningless it creates meaning in readers way.
