Here's the problem though. Trying to convince those who have made their living teaching that the earth is flat, would have to admit that all those hard long days and nights and years spent refining their "science" was all for naught, a fools errand, and that indeed their entire life and reputation is now in jeopardy. All the higher education, all the respected colleagues, the money spent that maybe they are still paying back, all for nothing. And you expect them to be honestly engaged in adopting a better way? No, the flat earthers must be flat earthers for all posterity. They are all in. Allegorically speaking.

Years later when asked by management to duplicate the functions of an app I created so that those functionalities could be incorporated into that team's main app, that same programmer concluded it would be impractical because my app did way more than they realized. The app saves that team about 2 hours a day of expensive staff time, which is quite a lot considering they have used it for 10 years.
