The transforming world has had a change in the values and beliefs it contains in the past 100 years. This change is called a paradigm shift. Technically the definition of a paradigm shift is when observations that no longer fit the basic model of reality, the paradigm, and studied by scientists likely causing them to rethink their beliefs and sometimes discard them (Chiras, D.
