Science Behind 10 Superstitious Beliefs

Society is the source of knowledge. If you are searching something in the society, think that you are heading towards a huge library but not to read a book but to add a new book for others. However, some beliefs in the society are really funny. I say such beliefs the superstitious beliefs. But the funnier and interesting thing is that these superstitious beliefs have hidden science behind them. I have collected some of such beliefs and also tried to expose the secret science behind them. Hope I have served a well stuff for you all. Enjoy it.

1. Son and mother should not be departed on Saturday
If son has to leave home for some reasons like job, education, etc, he should do it in other days except Saturday. Because son and mother should not be departed on Saturday.

Actually mother makes sure her small child take bath and also washes his clothe on Saturday because it is holiday. So people made rule that they should be together on Saturday.

mother-and-son

2. Don’t live in daughter’s house
When daughter is sent to another house, the parents should not eat anything in her house. Neither can they live there in their old ages.

The reason is that if parents are free to eat at daughter’s home and they can also live there, daughter will be equally valuable as son for the parents and it may eradicate the gender inequality problem in the society.

3. Insect found in tea is the sign of fortune
People believe that if insects like fly and mosquito are found in the tea or coffee, it is a good sign. They should just throw the insect and have the tea. They will meet good fortune.

This belief was made so that people do not throw the tea. And it can save the money of the shopkeeper.

4. If daughters are married in the early ages, the parents will go to the heaven
Some superstitious parents still force their daughter to get married in early age thinking that they will go to the heaven.

This system was made by the people not to invest on daughters for her education as they think that they will go to other’s home and they can’t give them any returns.

5. If you find money or gold that is unfortunate
People take finding property like gold and money to be unfortunate.

This system was made to force people report their findings without digesting.

6. Weeping babies while dropping from home is a good sign
When people find their children or babies crying they become happy because they think it is a good sign.

The actual reason is that babies cry so that they can follow their parents wherever they are going. So people started thinking and developing the belief that it is a good sign.

7. A person before baptism should not get marry
People get marry only after their baptism which is done by the priest. They are not allowed to marry before baptism.

The reality is that a person before the time of baptism is so child and a child can not marry.

8. Clothes should not be washed at night
People strictly follow the rule that they should not wash the clothes at night.

This is because there is no sun at night and it takes longer time to dry the clothes without sun.

9. Don’t wet head without undressed
People believe that they should not pour water on their head with any dress on body.

The actual reason is that the dress will be wet.

10. Woman should not give birth to a child at the home of her parents
People think that a woman should give birth to her baby at her husband’s home not at her parent’s home.

This is a pretext to continue patriarchal society by creating male dominated tradition.
