Banning superstitions


Originally uploaded by Liangcai.

In most cultures, the number 13 is said to be an inauspicious number. While there is certaintly no concrete proof of this, the superstition has gone as far as to have some buildings remove the 13th floor entirely just to avoid any bad luck. Indeed, there are some HDBs (high rise housing apartments) that do not have a button to the 13th floor in their elevators.

Just wondering, why not also ban the number 666, since it connotates an unholy idea as stated in the christian bible? Wouldn’t it make equal sense to do so?

    why dont we brush up our reading skills and search for the research on superstitions and find out that all of this is a creation of human imagination rather then anything else

    Matters of faith and belief is not something that can be explained by simple empirical evidence and accounts. It’s just a different perspective.
