Thought for today  
System X:
 Begin:
  X1: Anyone who does not believe System X will burn in hell.
  X2: It is your duty to save others from suffering.
 End.
If you believed in System X, you would attempt to save others from hell by convincing them that System X is true. Thus System X has an implicit 'hook' that follows from its two explicit sentances, and so System X is a self-replicating idea system. Without being impious, one may suggest that this mechanism has played some small role in the spread of Christianity.
