I still have no use for belief or faith. I have seen enough evidence to
conclude that the existence of memes is sufficiently well proven to allow
investigation and discussion. The second question is demonstrated as
awareness in the existence of this mailing list. The third is also
demonstrated by both the list and Dawkin's essay , which I have read, and
Brodie's book, which I have not read but have numerous eyewitness
accounts of in the list.
