Provably wrong[edit]

I was surprised to see that Jfdwolff, who has a background in science, wrote that a superstition is "provably wrong". Due to the fact that it is difficult to prove that a belief is never correct, I changed the wording to "irrational", which reflects the superstition article. You can't prove that superstitions are wrong, but you can show that superstitions have never been proven to be correct. Rhobite 22:25, 23 February 2006 (UTC)
