Paradigm Shift

We discussed Paradigm Shifts on Tuesday and disccused how they fit in the context of Science, History and Culture.

Remember that a Paradigm Shift is as a change from one way of thinking to another.

Below you have a list of issues and/or events. I would like you to discuss what society was like before and after these Paradigm Shifts. Post your reply in the comments section to 7 of these Paradigm Shifts.

(Example: Columbus Discovering America - Before people they thought the earth was flat and after they realised it was actually round and it changed navigation drastically.)

1- The A-Bomb being dropped on Hiroshima
2- Internet
3- The Printing Press
4- Rock & Roll
5- Martin Luther (Reformation)
6- Martin Luther King Jr.
7- Movies
8- Industrial Revolution
9- MySpace
10- Automobiles
11- Pastuerization
12- People blind since birth are suddenly enabled to see.
13- The English monarchy with the signing of Magna Carta.

Some of these Paradigm Shifts may require a history refresher so research those events online to help you out.

Here is a double-image picture. At first glance, it looks naughty, doesn't it?

If you look again, the shadows are actually comprised of dolphins. If you still don't see it, just tell me and I'll point them out to you on Tuesday. :)
