THE DEAD HORSE THEORY....

Say you're riding a horse. Sadly, the horse dies. Common sense dictates that you dismount it, does it not? Sadly, this is not what happens. Thus the dead horse theory. The tribal wisdom of the plain Indians, passed on from generation to generation, says that when you discover that you are riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount it. However, throughout history, and still happening now, we see business, education and government take more advanced strategies such as:

1. Buying a stronger whip.

2.Changing riders.

3.Threatening the horse with termination.

4.Appointing a committee to study the horse.

5.Arranging to visit other countries to see how others ride dead horses. (Kenyan MCAs eh, Kenyan MCAs ah!)

6.Lowering the standards so that dead horses can be included.

7.Re-classifying the dead horse as 'living impaired'.

8.Hiring outside contractors to ride the dead horse.

9.Harnessing several dead horses together to increase the speed.

10.Providing additional funding and/or training to increase the dead horse's performance.

11.Doing a productivity study to see if lighter riders would improve the dead horse's performance.

12.Declaring that the dead horse doesn't have to be fed, it is less costly, carries lower over head, and therefore contributes substantially more to the bottom line of the economy than do some other horses.

13.Re-writing the expected performance requirements for all horses.

14.Promoting the dead horse to a supervisory position of hiring another horse.

All this, and we still ask why violence, misogyny, discrimination, corruption, stealing and lack of professionalism still exists!

This premise only holds valid for situations that you do not have complete control over all variables. i.e if the horse dies, there is no way you can replace the heart give it life and continue with the journey.

However, if the horse were a car and the engine fails, a simple replacement will suffice. That, my friend, is the epitome of civilization, evolution and having a brain that can identify a problem and fix it. If man was meant to live only on ancient wisdom, we would still be in caves.

So, Sorry, this argument is mute in most scenarios.

If this is the question, I suggest you travel all over the world and thou shall see that there is no answer to your question! Thus my suggestion is that you are just adding to the pit of shit with even more shit if you are just asking a question without giving an answer. Infact that whole thread is just useless as you have added no new knowledge to the world, and lastly what was the conclusion again of your thread???????

Effidence? Surely,there must be a horse god who created horses...
There are three Gods. Yahweh Jesus and The Holy Spirit. They're responsible for horses.
Yea, and if horses dont worship a god, then it beats logic why they exist in the first place.
There's an ecosystem. We're all part of keeping the earth alive.
Tell me the day you see your pet cat deep in prayer meowing Our Father, who art in Heaven....

Reminds me of the old lie that birds wake up early to worship the creator. I learnt just recently that the morning singing is all part of morning glory.
