  1. Its a good job Susan Blackmore doesn’t get invited to speak simply on the basis that she believes in something silly! Perhapse I am being a bit unfair, after all she can’t choose whether or not to believe in memetics. Its just luck that she has all the good memes and unfortunate for me that I have some of the nasty memes.

    Sometimes I think ‘New atheism’is just a combination of Logical Empiricism and the mythologisation of Darwin and his theory of natural selection to produce a heady mix of scientism and pseudo-religion. Maybe that’s just the nasty memes talking though!
