If you like science fiction, you may remember the Nazi planet from the original Star Trek and an old "B" movie called "Galaxina" with a religion that worshipped "the great god Harley-Davidson and his son Elvis."
What is culture?
Supposed you were taught as a child to spin around three times before opening the refrigerator or the food would be cursed and spoil. After you grow up you find out that it's not true -- but you still do it out of habit and then teach your children to do the same.
Then suppose you travelled to a place where people didn't have refrigerators. How would you explain this aspect of your "culture" to them?
Why continue to do something if the reasons for doing so no longer exist?
