Rabbits Foot and Random Chances

I am all for individuality. If you want to dress up like Peter Pan and think that your rabbits foot and troll doll collection have anything to do with the reason that you are winning at bingo I have no objection.

I know that people can be fooled by random chance and inference. I know that we can incorrectly assign the reason for an event happening to something arbitrary. We as humans have a tendency to try to determine how and why events happen incorrectly. Which is why I don’t laugh at your rabbit’s foot and troll dolls.

However, when you think your superstitious believes should protect you from criticism or give you favored tax treatment and rights you are mistaken.
