Memes versus truth, cont.
In our continuing exchange, Leonard D. argues that my analogy between genes and memes is overdone. He says that “the brain is not a construct of memes, but rather, genes. Thus, it can be expected to have its own agenda, namely, that of the individual. There is a ‘you’ here.” Meaning that we as entitities produced by Darwinian evolution are capable of seeking and knowing truth. I point out that Leonard’s argument has perfectly refuted itself.
