What is the connection between GODWIN's Law, the swastika, and MEMEs?
Godwin's law (also known as Godwin's Rule of Nazi Analogies or Godwin's Law of Nazi Analogies) is an assertion made by Mike Godwin in 1990 that has become an Internet adage. It states: "As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1." In other words, Godwin said that, given enough time, in any online discussion—regardless of topic or scope—someone inevitably makes a comparison to Hitler or the Nazis.
Although in one of its early forms Godwin's law referred specifically to Usenet newsgroup discussions, the law is now often applied to any threaded online discussion, such as forums, chat rooms and blog comment threads, and has been invoked for the inappropriate use of Nazi analogies in articles or speeches.
In 2012, "Godwin's Law" became an entry in the third edition of the Oxford English Dictionary.
I do LOVE the underlying message in all of the above.

Because look what I found/recovered from 5000 BCE, a MEME that spells it out >>> MNEME

The swastika is an inherent part of Intelligent Design.
