Bible Stories for Atheists

Sep 24 2023 • 1 hr 1 min

We're taking a break from the bible to learn a little about some ancient superstitions. Well, OTHER ancient superstitions.

Have you ever had a baby give you menacing grimace? Has an ex-lover given you a chilling side-eye? Have you ever been some where in public and possibly had someone look at you even without your knowledge? THEN YOU MAY BE CURSED! But don't worry. I have a charm to sell you that can take it away. It's called a Hamsa Hand and it blocks the Evil Eye.

This superstition soaked into the Jewish, Christian, Islam, Hindu and pagan religious beliefs. Where did it come from and why is everyone so scared of it?

No really, I'm asking. Because we don't know.
