If science and technology provide no reason to do so, then no, you should not. If science and technology provide a valid reason to do so, then yes, you should.
In the context of the current discussion, no, you should not, because doing so would diminish further science from all of us.

Here none think of wealth or fame,
All talk of right and wrong is quelled:
In autumn I rake the leaf-banked stream, In spring attend the nightingale.
Who dares approach the lion's
Mountain cave? Cold, robust,
A Scientist through and through,
I let the morning breeze enter at the gate. --Li Po, cognitive scientist extraordinaire
