Virus theme perpetuates itself

Following the theme of the blog I have actually left out one obvious link, and that is to Richard Dawkins' comment that religion is (or resembles) a virus. I hasten to point out that this is not to do with denying a sense of mystery at the root of universe, or even of mystical experiences - more to do with the passing on (unchanged) of arbitrary beliefs and rituals by society's institutions.
