... or "redundant self-replication".

ps... I know what I know

(Oh, and why is it that the pseudo-logical rebuttals you come-up with, Joe, repeatedly show your bias and hatred for "believers" rather than being reasoned responses or knowledgeable counter-examples?)

I always suspected you had to be a believer, Brettster, 'cause you're obviously not a knower.

Meds, Brett! Now! And stop staring into that mirror; it'll only make you crazier (No, Brett, DON'T get between TWO of them - Ohno, too late! He's trapped in the Infinite miasma of Recursive Self-Reflection!)
