Stephen Fry on QI explaining how social experiments on pigeons demonstrates the basis of the superstitious/religious mind.
between QI, Nevermind the Buzzcocks, and Doctor Who I could watch British TV indefinitely..
I agree and if the BBC stopped doing Science documentaries the TV would be sold - if I did not throw a hammer through it first. The majority of everything else is so dumbed down it....oh don't start Reg.
LOL @ it being a sin for a catholic to be superstitious...
Yeah, but decorate your car with religious symbols, keep counting the rosary, and eat fish on Friday, ok?
(I'm a recovering catholic). Catholics have a very convenient way of getting around such issues, they change the rules...literally. Take a careful look at the "protestant" 10 commandments and the "catholic" 10 commandments. (Oh yes, they ARE different, if you don't already know.) The catholics have removed "Thou shalt make no graven image" and divided #10 in to "wife" and "property". This is how they get around all the statues, rosaries, paintings, etc. As a child, I was told that it was those pesky protestants that changed it but history doesn't support the notion.
