The Book Meme: a Common Ancestor

A few days back, Afarensis tagged me with the Book Meme that started with Ben Meyers at Faith and Theology. In turn, I tagged Coturnix, Salto Sobrius, Unintelligent Design, Amused Muse, and Defending Science. The last two didn’t pick up on my meme, though. I read at Amused Muse but have never posted and Silkworm doesn’t stray far from his core topic.

Still, the meme was a fun exercise and it was fun reading what others posted up and down the meme lines. I finally got tagged again by Brad at HUNBlog, so I thought I’d post the meme lines to show the evolution of the book meme for our two blogs. It would seem that our common ancestor is Abnormal Interests.

Man, wouldn’t it be fun if someone took the time to come up with a complete phylogeny of the book meme?

The Hot Cup of Joe meme line
, from me to Ben Meyers is:

Hot Cup of Joe <== Afarensis <== Abnormal Interests <== Thoughts on Antiquity <== The Dilettante Exegete <== Resurrection Dogmatics <== Faith and Theology

The HUNBlog meme line, to Ben Meyers is:

HUNBlog <== Radioactive Banana <==  Dr. Shellie  <==  The Clutter Museum <== Ethics and Science <== Abnormal Interests <== Thoughts on Antiquity <== The Dilettante Exegete <== Resurrection Dogmatics <== Faith and Theology
