Science and Superstition

In the age of science what does it take for a person to be superstitious? Myths helped our distant ancestors to make sense of the world so I understand why they exist.  That there are a sizable number of  people in the twenty first century who believe that the earth is six thousand years old or that performing certain rituals brings you good luck and the failure to do the same, hardship, boggles my mind.  Their God seems like a petty tyrant rather than a divine being.  It also seems essential to their world view to coerce others to their point of view.  Their use of religion as a bludgeon to enforce their authority and control, is off-putting to say the least.
