Hi all;

Found this on a web page:

Chuch of Virus

An offshoot of the Extropians. It's actually not so much a religion ---
even a ``a memetically engineered atheistic religion'' --- as
a bunch of militant rationalists who've O.D.'d on Richard Dawkins and
general systems theory (the latter a boondoggle if there
ever was one). ``The name [Virus] was chosen to be deliberately
antagonistic, to put people on their guard and let them know
this idea was designed to infect them. Call it truth in advertising.''
[CRS, himself a militant rationalist fond of Dawkins]

What a great review, eh?
