There is a world of difference bweteen tolerance in this sense and genuine respect. Yes, but I think the implication is the opposite of that you claim. On pragmatic grounds (getting along with people, wanting reciprocal tolerance for my own errors, learning from others what my errors are) I am tolerant of superstition. But I am also unashamedly disrespectful of it if I think it error, I think it error. And there is no reason why I should respect an ancient superstition more than a modern one.The only value of any culture is in the welfare of the people practicing it it is not something valuable in its own right apart from that as it has no existence apart from those people. So really this case comes down to utilitarian arguments about which is the greater good .
