I think (fear is a better word) Dennett is as delusional predicting the end of faith as are the faithful who predict the end of the world. Col. Robert Green Ingersoll predicted the death of religion in his lifetime and that was 150 years ago.

Religious ideas go far beyond mere memes- they are wombs that protect delicate, fearful psyches protected by impervious cacoons. The best and only hope in my opinion is control and restriction- eradication is not possible. Think of religions as cockroaches.

And Richard- the world would recognize you as a contrarian even if you wore a tie that went less "stridently" with your suit and shirt.
