Agathinai, my definition of superstition is quite simple. Belief in anything that has not been proved is superstition. That makes religion and superstition conjoined twins. But though an unabashed unbeliever I have enough knowledge of cultural history of mankind to know the positive contribution of religion to cultural enrichment, in the fields of art, architecture, music, literature etc/ After all without religion you cannot visualize the Sistine Chapel, Rome's St.Peter's. , hanjavur Brihadeeswara tenmple, Bach's St.Mathew Passion, Handel's Messaiah, Krithis of Tyagaraja, Dikshitar etc. But I also believe religion has exhausted its creative energy and only its twin superstition is alive and kicking.
