Lesson #4

Pack an "honest effort and individual accomplishment is worthless"
poison in a simple ridicule package:

>And what must Dawkins think of HIS bastard child by now?
>Does he realize that the frontier has moved beyond him...
>that his shining ideas have been widely accepted, and are
>now like all models...obsolete?

Make a suggestion the achiever was "just lucky":

>To Dawkins "Memes" were a one-off, a clever idea stuck
>amidst the "meaty stuff".

Then suggest it's really YOUR work, or better yet, share it
with your co-hosts (you can discredit them later):

>We have cut out his creation's gall bladder and made it the heart.
>Is any one surpised he doubts it beats?

Pretend you are sorry for the original inventor:

>What must he think of the beast which is driven by such a thing?

Acknowledgments: Thank you "David R. character" for inspiration
for this lesson.

Caution: This one is a really "well" designed virus (has anybody
done the search for "Four Principles", Richard asked for?).
After finding the quotes, I am amazed myself how easy it
is to make an SOB look like a simple idiot and let the poison
sink in your brain.
