    This is another way of saying that arguing with a believer is futile. Better to just get rid of the non-believers....

    On almost any front, hate is hate and allows violence. Is hate memetic? That goes back to what our nature is. We are certainly killers, certainly lovers. Ain't memetics more a way to filter and utilize these urges?

    The memetic filters of islam do not prevent violence because they do not condemn it against the enemy, and they have a very singular and fundamental definition of enemy.
