Claim: Knowing about the past cannot help people to make important decisions today.
Reason: The world today is significantly more complex than it was even in the relatively recent past.
Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the claim and the reason on which that claim is based.

In recent years, scientists have gained considerably new insights into the subject of blackholes by using as guidelines, the Albert Einstein’s theory of everything which he been postulated several decades ago. There have been similar scenarios in which previous scholarships have immensely contributed towards the development of current researches. The prompt argues that having an understanding of the past cannot help people to make important decisions today. I mostly disagree with this claim for two reasons which I will elucidate below. However, I do concede that not all decisions can be reliably made using only past events as factors.
To begin, past events should be employed to make important decisions most of the time because everything we do today relies on past events. Even as the world grow significantly more complex, most of the happenings in today’s world can be referred back to history and things that has happened in the past. For instance, an investor that trades the stock markets base their analysis on past events which mostly reoccur in today’s world. It is unlikely for a trader to make decisions to buy commodities without looking at the history or the trend of the commodities in reversion. The complexity of the current world might not necessarily prevent cycles in the financial markets from reoccurring. In essence, we should use past events to judge our actions while making decisions because there is a high probability of previous events reshaping in the current world.
Secondly, people should make decisions based on past knowledge even as the world grow more complex because complexity does not directly hinder the quality of experience or knowledge. The world growing more complex does not directly mean that predictions based on past events will not hold. In fact, with the current trends and technology in the today’s world, it is likely that there will be enough sophisticated computer technologies that can accurately make predictions based on past events. For instance, using relevant data of certain events over a particular duration of time, an algorithm can be build using machine learning and deep learning to make incisive predictions on possible events to occur based on the data given. In short, complexity of today’s world does not necessarily affect making reliable decisions based on past events, in fact it provides us with tools to make more accurate predictions.
Admittedly, not all decisions can be made using only the knowledge of the past. There are certain decisions that need to be made only based on the current happenings. For instance, we cannot make the decision of deciding the extent of success of a particular student in school based on the academic success of his families, neither can men possibly make the decision of marrying a good wife based on the knowledge that their parents did.
In conclusion, having knowledge on past events will mostly help to make incisive decisions even as the world grow more complex. Nevertheless, not all decisions can be made by using past knowledge as reference.
