← Does Conservatism Have to Be Synonymous With Ignorance?

Conservatism does not imply ignorance.

Many scientists are conservative by nature.

"Amazing new discovery that overturn our understanding of the universe?!?!?!?! Slow down a bit. Lets test this a few more times before we throw out our old books."

It is the form of conservatism that practices irrational adherence to tradition that we should be concerned with.
