Logic/Science: The juxtaposition of two events does not necessarily imply causality.
Ex: Breaking a mirror or a black cat crossing one’s path does not necessarily equate with bad luck. If believe bad luck will occur, will be hypersensitive to even the most minute manifestation. “Bad luck” is then easily recognized and attributed to the offending initial event/object.
Magic appears to work, because the actions requested will often occur naturally
Ex: Magic to bring rain after the dry season, to enable crops to grow. Aztec practice of feeding the sun so it won’t expire.
Magic works because of a human psychological disposition towards a positive result.
Ex: Bone Pointing among the Australian Aborigines. (relatives also do not feed/care for the afflicted)
Ex: The Secret, “mind over matter”Why does Magic work?
