When was the first superstition?
Restored the original answer:
Superstitions have inhabited the minds of humankind since we first became self aware. It is the nature of our thinking to find links (no matter how far fetched) between causes and effects. I personally believe this is reflected in the first real question most children learn, "Why". We are not a species comfortable with the concept that "stuff happens" or that we do not have a personal and direct link to the things (great and small) that happen around us. Many a myth, superstition, and spiritual path started this way.

Whether there are any superstitions within Christianity depends on your definition of superstition. Some see all religion as superstition and on that view Christianity is, in its entirety, superstition.

Fear of the devil and of demons is consistent with superstition, and rituals… Read More
