Second, if as a Hindu you are told you cant eat beef, you dont eat beef. Its not a preference or tradition but a restriction. Now, when you get converted you are told it is ok to eat beef. You may still follow your old dietary restriction. But your children, who see their neighbours eating beef, and have no such restrictions imposed on them, may choose to. When they taste it for the first time, they are sold. Because, lets face it, beef is delicious!! And a new "tradition" is started.

Third, you are assuming that ALL traditions have been there for eons. Again, not true. Traditions are whatever you got from your previous generation. So it is easy to start a new tradition. Two generations later - it has been a tradition in your family for generations.
Basically what you are saying is that if we start a new tradition of not believing in god/s today... in a couple of generations, god/s is/are finito After all, aren't gods also a restriction

Secondly, beef is not delicious. I can never understand this... it sucks and tastes so flat. Absolutely flat. Give me a well-cooked vegetable anyday. O, the variety of flavours we can get with veggies... meat cannot hold a candle to them

Dietary restrictions... clothes restrictions... jewellery restrictions... cooking restrictions... talking restrictions... meeting restrictions... these are what traditions are made of. If there are no such restrictions... then khaakh karega traditions ka
