Physics and the search for fundamental laws: Is physics turning into biology?

The Standard Model of particle physicscontains many fundamental values whichmay be a result of pure accident Physics, unlike biology or geology, was not considered to be a historical science until now. Physicists have prided themselves on being able to derive the vast bulk of phenomena in the universe from first principles. Biology - and chemistry, as a matter of fact - are different.
