>(e) What is Universal Darwinism?

It's a small point, but I don't like this. Either the phrase, or the attaching of the '-ism' to Darwin. I especially dislike the 'Universal', because, well, it comes with some baggage, politically and ideologically, and besides, every fact is backed up by the entire universe anyway.

I suggest 'Expanded Evolution' - and I hope there is no tradition applying to the UD phrase, because, well, it sucks. In any case, who are we to stand on tradition? Huh?
