Almost all academics try to speak from authority. But I expect that
if memetics is going to become a science it will have to be accepted by
the scientists. I never met an academic who didn't believe religiously
in what he through was "the Truth." You no doubt have similar feelings
about the Truth of your church.

Hey! Do you think there are no academics on this list? Why don't you
objectify us a little more? Who, exactly do you think the "scientists"
are? Why do you insist on propagating "us-vs.-them" memes?

I, for one, tend to discount everything I think.
