The Futility of Uninformed Predictions

We live in amazing times. We're so much more advanced than we were even a decade and a half ago. So why should we bother looking at anything that happened before? Predictions require data. And there are millions of volumes that have been written that contain data, stories, lessons, and cautionary tales. They're there, just waiting for us to consume and put them to use for our modern means. This week's show has a story about the failure to do just that.   “The old wheel turns, and the same spoke comes up. It’s all been done before, and will be again.” – Sir Arthur Conan Doyle   Would you consider leaving a rating or review for the show on Apple Podcasts?
