Just as the design of our bodies can be understood only in terms of natural selection, so the design of our minds can be understood only in terms of memetic selection.More Susan Blackmore quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

The sale of sex in modern societies is not about spreading genes. Sex has been taken over by the memes.More Susan Blackmore quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
