Battle against blind faith

Despite being a deeply spiritual person, Vivekananda was one of the strongest critics of superstition. His words stand testimony to his stance on the issue- “To believe blindly is to degenerate the human soul. Be an atheist if you want, but do not believe in anything unquestioningly.”
