Do you believe in curses?



I use the Egyptian curse of 'Tutankhamun' as an example.

There was one theory,

The most intriguing theory to explain the legend of the curse was advanced by atomic scientist Louis Bulgarini in 1949. He wrote:

`It is definitely possible that the ancient Egyptians use atomic radiation to protect their holy places. The floors of the tombs could have been covered with uranium. Or the graves could have been finished with radioactive rock. Rock containing both gold and uranium was mined in Egypt. Such radiation could kill a man today.'


More, Here

Basically, do you believe in that curse or any other curses or is it basically a load of mumbo-jumbo and silly superstitions?

The "curse" on that tomb has been rather effectively denied almost since it was first touted.

A reading of the Book of the Dead might be in order.

My m-i-l believed in Jinn and evil spirits. She burned papers and used water to diffuse curses. I have no time for such beliefs personally.
