assignment:should people always prefer new things, ideas, or values to those of the past?

Should people always prefer new thing to the old? Many people argue that we should not accept the new easily and should sick to the old. As far as I am concerned, we must always try our best to listen to the new ideas because new opinions can stimulate our creativity, correct the mistakes of the past and lead us to greater achievements.
Albert Einstein, the world renowned scientist, supports my view. In 19th century, all the physicists regarded the classic system established by Isac Newton to study the motion of everything was perfect, therefore, what they did was repeating the experiments of their predecessors and improving them. Unlike his contempories, Einstein was not limited by the conventional way of study and create a new method to perceive the universe. However, when he put forward his new theory, special relativity, which solved some fundamental problems in physics, all the people opposed his new idea. But it later proved that his new theory was right and made contribution to the development of science. had people preferred Einstein¡¯s new theory to the old one, our society as well as science would be more advanced than they are now.
Nicolause Corpernicus, the founder of the heliocentric theory, assumed that the earth went around the sun based on scientific calculation. However, people in his days all hold fast to the wrong view that the earth was the centre of the universe and paid no attention to or distain that creative idea. It was not until Galileo Galilei invented the telescope which enabled people to observe the celestial bodies that people accept the ideal of Corpernicus. If people at that time embraced the new idea, human beings would know the truth of the universe earlier and the study of astronomy would not be hampered by the misleading belief of the past.
The examples in history demonstrate that sticking to the old may prevent us from further improvements because we will never be aware of our mistakes in the past and will be unable to know the truth lying in the new. Consequently, we should always prefer the new for development in the future.
