Are all religions superstitions?

Christianity, Judaism, and Islam are superstitions.  Buddhism is if full of superstition.  African diasporic religions that involve ancestor veneration and  divine spirits are based on superstitions.   The main religions of India; Hinduism, Sikhism, Jainism,  and Buddhism depend on blind beliefs and superstitions for its existence.  Please, if any body can tell me, what religions are not superstitions?See More

Why you left your religion.
Growing up as a Protestant, going to Sunday school and church I learned a lot about Christianity and the bible. I paid attention but never really took anything I learned very seriously. As I grew up I became interested more in the history of Christianity that in the faith of it. The more I learned the more I could see that Christianity and all religions were created by humans throughout the ages. So here I am with the rest of you who have gotten here through our own personal ways and experiences.
