What’s the harm?

This is probably the most frequent question asked of skeptics, and it’s an excellent question. The simple answer is, No, you won’t die from reading your daily horoscope, unless you do it while standing under a large falling rock. BUT, superstitious beliefs and paranormal thinking easily leads to poor decision making, needlessly living in imaginary fears, and mass hysteria when these beliefs are held by groups.

This site will highlight the costs, in lives, families, and nations affected by this type of thinking, not only in the past, but the present as well, with commentary added.

Be warned, you may find some of the stories shocking, disturbing, or horrifying. That is the point. This affects all of us, whether we subscribe to these beliefs or not, we could still be victim to them.
