Proposed explanations of Cosmology
employing Darwinian processes are recent developments in the evolution

The Life of the Cosmos.
A recent elaboration on this
theory was presented in an article
Scientific Alternatives to the Anthropic
The inclusion of Cosmology within the

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.
