    Aaron: However, he [Dawkins] has in 2001 accepted a $100,000 Kistler prize basically for having coined the word meme and written a handful of non-technical articles using it.

    Derek. Oh come on Aaron, reality gap alert, please!! What the Kistler prize is really for:
    "Given by the Foundation For the Future, the Prize recognizes international scholarship in the field of genetics. It is awarded for original, substantive, and innovative contributions to the understanding of the relationship between genetics and human behavior, including intelligence. These contributions are of a scientific nature, employing scientific methods to establish the connections between genetics and human behavior." from

    Dawkins deserves that prize, doesn't he?
