I'd better restate my question:
(i) Shakers practiced celibacy. Genetically therefore there was no
replication. There are also no more Shakers, ergo their memes have also died
(except if you believe in furniture as meme replicators to IKEA and the
(ii) Other groups rooted in similar traditional beliefs have transmitted
their genes, and their memes.
ie, would this suggest that genetic replication is required for "faith" and
"belief" memes after the first generation?
