VIDEO: Richard Dawkins gets trippy for memes and genes

Richard Dawkins' latest video will go some way to making his own speech an internet meme.. thereby proving his point? Arggh!

There is a point, I assure you, to this bizarre performance by author, scientist and celebrity atheist Richard Dawkins.

I assure you, there is.

It's just that in amongst his own cult of celebrity, and assumption of prior knowledge on behalf of the audience, he just ends up looking like a man who's been smoking a few too many, er... memes. 

But really, after you get over the profoundly confusing visuals and the like, the idea that memes spread like genes (or vice versa?) isn't a terrible way to convey evolutionary science to the internet generation.
