    Of course they are more likely to believe in superstitions, this is unavoidable by definition.


    After all science is a superstition form the perspective of pure religion.

    the saddest part, is that baylor is still considered an accredited university. People actually get degrees from an institution that signs off on studies that assume religion is not 100% superstition!

    I thought Christians more or less believed in witches and spells, ouija boards, palm reading, sťances, spiritual possession, prophecies and omens, etc.

    Sounds supersticious to me. They just have other names for some of it.
    Like "devil worship" and "the works of evil".

    Atheists believe that Christianity is a superstition.

    Because you can't spell "Slaughter" without "Laughter"

    It would be... superstition to believe in, say, possession, perhaps.

    In a limited context, that is true. Normally when people refer to "superstition," they mean less-organized things like fear of broken mirrors and black cats. (I would include Astrology, because although it is highly organized, there is not even a pretense of evidence to support its validity.) The typical Christian belief in demonic activity is an integral part of the supernatural construct, and is usually limited to formal circumstances that are specifically tied to Satan. I don't think most Christians believe that ordinary ouija boards are reliable, as the vast majority of so-called fortune-tellers and other mystics can be shown to be frauds with a little digging.

    Note that I said "pretense," not "presence."
