I don't.

I do. Several shits, in fact.

I really enjoyed the last partial eclipse I experienced, some years ago. Looking forward to the great weirdness of it.

I have to work, plus, not a total eclipse here. Otherwise yes, it is awesome!

Traditionally an eclipse is an occasion for human sacrifices for non-Abrahamic belief systems.

An eclipse like this is fascinating. Scientists are closely studying it's effects.
Other than that it means nada.

ha ha ha. Nothing like sacrificing virgins to the Gods to ensure the sun keeps shining. The Abrahamic religions have their own belief systems that are just as stupid.
You can't really blame these belief systems from emerging, because in the old days they simply did not have the scientific knowledge that we have today. The problem is the Abrahamic religions and every other religion in existence today continue to believe in religious nonsense, even though science has proven them to be dead wrong.
I have always wondered why the human mind is so prone to brainwashing.

Humans are social creatures. When the dominant paradigm is based on a lie, most people would rather believe the lie than be left out as the only one who will acknowledge the truth.
