I think it could safely be said that superstition is idolatry.
There are lot of very superstitious people out there. For example someone recently said to me, they think the reason their sports team never wins the cup; is because their arena is build on "an Indian burial ground.
Clearly believing something like this is a form of idolatry.
I am reminded also of an old childhood superstition, that was popular. "Don't step on a crack, you will break your mother's back."
Would it also be correct to say that superstition has roots in Pantheism?

1. I disagree that superstition is idolatry (proper). Of course, biblically anything and everything which does not acknowledge God as He is nor worships Him in accordance with His regulative principle, which is thus man-made worship; aka: vain, profane worship, is idolatry.

2. It would not be correct to say that superstition has roots in Pantheism.

Pantheism: "A doctrine that identifies God with the universe, or regards the universe as a manifestation of God."

Why do you think that superstition is rooted in Pantheism? scratchchin
