Scientific Alternatives to the Anthropic Principal

Cosmological Natural Selection vs. Eternal Inflation


Universal Darwinism and Cosmology

Proposed explanations of Cosmology employing Darwinian processes are recent developments in the evolution of Universal Darwinism. Lee Smolin's theory of Cosmological Natural Selection is the most developed. This theory was initially presented in his book The Life of the Cosmos. A recent elaboration on this theory was presented in an article Scientific Alternatives to the Anthropic Principal.

The inclusion of Cosmology within the realm of Universal Darwinism provides a testament to the power of Darwin's 'Dangerous Idea'. Scientific explanations for all design whether found in Cosmology, Biology or Culture are now available employing Darwinian processes as their primary creator of design.
