I think we should try to Memetically Engineer an Atheism that is just as viral as theism! So let's get to it!
Religions are very old, highly evolved memeplexes. They have been designed through memetic evolution to be resistant to science--they are unfalsifiable. They claim that unfalsifiability as one of their greatest strengths and virtues. They punish adherants for even thinking
about alternative world views, otherwise known as alternative memeplexes. Apostasy, the abandonment of one memeplex for another, has historically been punishable by death. Adherents are rewarded through the positive feelings
of communal activities. Those infected with the religious memes are compelled by the memes themselves as well as other infected to propagate and spread the virus through proselytization.
So, what is the most virulent version of Atheism we can create here? There's a catch: it has to uphold the general values of modern democracy. Liberté, égalité, fraternité! Rights and
Thomas Paine: The Age of Reason
John Stuart Mill: On Liberty
John Milton: Areopagitica
Let's get to work!
