Frank Modeya Posted 9 months ago Should there be any push for a culture to change one of its views? SQ: When does a culture lose its uniqueness, if changing its views? Tradition is very retrogressive, how far along would modern science be had its growth not been stunned by religion before, during and after the dark ages. Parents are to blame. Parent-child relationships should not be based on the impartation of tradition but of knowledge. Knowledge, especially that from science, changes with time as we come to understand more about reality. Tradition ignores reality and stays firm in its beliefs, it remains the same in the face of irrefutable evidence, this is detrimental to the progression of mankind. It pisses me off that We could be riding in flying cars and taking regular vacations to the moon in the next 100 years...while simultaneously fearful of black cats crossing our paths. Here in South Africa its no coincidence that rural areas ( known to be drenched in tradition ) are in an almost permanent state of stagnation.
