Wrongo, nimrod. Blind and purposeless evolution of an organism through the process of natural selection is the same as conceptiondriven purposeful innovation of language and/or technology by selfcomscious individuals only for the terminally confused such as yourself.

Meme propagation is dependent upon the communication/imitation of linguistic expressions and/or technological methods and products, and as such is restricted to humans.
