    • Some don't like the idea of biological evolution because it portrays the development of species as being controlled by a natural process rather than God.
    • Poor God. I hope that our supreme control over thoughts is never threatened by a theory that argues some natural process is involved in the development of ideas.
    • We would have to prove this theory wrong by smiting it with our absolute POWER!
  • Starboard:
    • There is actually a strong argument that ideas do develop through a process of replication and selection as they are spread from mind to mind.
    • The evolving ideas are called memes.
  • Port:
    • What?
    • I believe whatever you just said was annihilated by my mind.
