. . . as the two sciences explain fundamentally different phenomena.
And yet, Carey, cosmological “natural selection” is an hypothesis proposed by the physicist Lee Smolin as a scientific alternative to the anthropic principle in his, IMO, lame attempt to addresses the problem of complexity in our universe, which is largely unexplained—similar, I might add to the largely unexplained complexity in life/biological evolution . . . . thus we witness the deceptive seductiveness of “selection”; and that even physicists, albeit the lesser physicists, may occasionally succumb to it’s allure.
