A symposium entitled: superstitions

Today on (Feb 25, 2024) in the presence of the head of departments and lecturer a symposium entitled (superstitions), was presented by the Assistant Lecturer (Zeravan Ayoub Ahmed) from the Department of Public Education, Where it has been explained about Superstitious behaviours, which arise through the incorrect assignment of cause and effect, receive considerable attention in psychology and popular culture. Perhaps owing to their seeming irrationality, however, they receive little attention in evolutionary biology. A superstition is any belief or practice considered by non-practitioners to be irrational or supernatural, attributed to fate or magic, perceived supernatural influence, or fear of that which is unknown. It is commonly applied to beliefs and practices surrounding luck, amulets, astrology, fortune telling, spirits, and certain paranormal entities, particularly the belief that future events can be foretold by specific unrelated prior events. At the end of the symposium, a set of questions and answers were raised on this subject.
