Standing athwart -- or at least, aside

How conservatives can avoid tying themselves in philosophical knots when news of the Next Kewl Scientific Breakthrough is announced: remember two chief tenets of true conservatism:

1) figuring out how to do something is no reason to do it, and

2) having a natural impulse is no reason to give in to it.

As I've said before, if you want to be cool, you can't be conservative. The two things are mutually exclusive.

(Prompted by this post on Transterrestrial Musings, where I left a similar comment.)
