Very interesting thoughts on superstition Pluribus, but I propose a few thoughts of my own.
- How did you consider yourself superstitous? Give some examples.
- What changed your view on superstition from Huck finn?
- How would you define superstition?
- What is free will?
- What defines free will?
- Do you believe free will can change your life fate?
- Do you believe in a supreme entity that controls your life?
Very interesting subject, can't wait for your replies.

I think that as far as superstitions go, and good luck charms etc, these are because they were the first things to have helped u when u had bad luck...
I'll explain further.
When 4 instance you are ill, you take medicine and it makes u better. Therefore you have 100% confidence that that made u better and u trust ot to do so in the future.
Good luck charms i believe are exactly the same. You could be experiencing bad luck / misfortune, and the first item or series of events that changes your luck you will remember, therefore always doing this in the future. ( Same as medicine - because u have 100% trust it will help you again in the future should u need it ).
Even though it might not, it has implanted itself in your subconcious
