I think people sometimes believe in magic because they don't understand the science or technology involved. Other reasons may be because our brains are limited and may only be able to understand certain things. For example, I believe in a number of unusual things like remote viewing, ESP, etc. But, I think that we don't understand exactly how our brains work yet.

Whenever people don’t understand actual things, they prefer magic more than anything else.
