As I've grown to adulthood (at least in terms of age, but maybe not so much in behavior…), I have repeatedly watched as 'the experts' (who change over time) have revealed the hidden truths of what's good for you, bad for you, appropriate in society, good/bad for the economy, good/bad for the environment, etc. Almost without exception, 'they' have been eventually proven wrong.
What is it about the human condition that we think we really do know it all? For any bi-pedal hominid to assert they have finally answered the question of why the planet Earth does what it does, I can only offer the well-worn adage:
'Tis better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool, than to open it and remove all doubt.
