If you believe one thing without good reason, you're more prone to believing other things without good reason, and that's going to lead to you making poor choices in life. Simply wanting something to be so does not make it so, and if you're rational enough to realize that you're just believing this because it feels good, as you are, then what's the point of believing it at all? You know it's silly and you know it doesn't add anything to your life that you couldn't just as easily have without silly superstitions and supernatural hogwash.
