Babies are too young for superstition.  And you aren't an ubermensch either.

I suppose superstition (black cats) doesn't require spirits though ... one could view "luck" as impersonal.  Or you could view black cats as familiars of witches.  Is an impersonal view of irrational ... less developed than the more personal kind?  I would think the other way around, from the atheist POV.  First Goddess Luck, then just "luck".  The third stage is "broke".

Claptrap.

Cat furcolor is nearly random and means nothing.

Luck is merely a random event; a local outlier of statistics.

Atheists view random events as neither lucky or unlucky.

Must be why there are no atheists in foxholes or casinos ;-)
