Dinosaur Brains

    There was a book published years ago called DINOSAUR BRAINS.   The theme of the book was that many people are mired in the past and have no conceptualization of thinking in the present time and/or innovating new methodologies.   They just meander doing things the way it always has been done even though it is apparently futile to say the least.   They believe that the past is an elixir for what ails one.   However, what is applicable/acceptable in the past is totally passe in the postindustrial era.  Many people glorify the mores, ethos, and lifestyles of the past, not realizing that people did certain things because they do not know any better or there was nothing better available.   As time changes and progresses, technologies and methodolies do also; however, this falls upon the deaf ears and closed minds of some people.  Do you agree with this premise?

    That is religion and conservatism nicely described.

      To recommend1:  Sadly, those people portend that they are correct and normal.  When you present a more enlightened and intelligent premise,  they look at you as if you were completely amiss.   You look at these people and wonder why can't they catch up!   You suddenly come to a realization that you are beating a proverbial dead horse!
