Encyclopedia

Superstition is a belief in supernatural causality: that one event leads to the cause of another without any process in the physical world linking the two events. It is commonly applied to beliefs and practices surrounding luck, prophecy and spiritual beings, particularly the belief that future events can be foretold by specific unrelated prior events. — Wikipedia
