Jack, past wisdom is wonderful, you’re right and I have no contention here, the customs, practices, norms of past generations is what we get from our parents, teachers, older friends etc. as well as from the languages we speak, the books and other literary and artistic artifacts we come in contact with. This is called Culture, collectively speaking. Religion is but a slice of culture, so it is not the sole authority on past wisdom.
