Occam's Razor? But take care, I really know these subjects.
 Quoting: glauco

Tell us what you think you know about Occam's Razor. I suspect all you know about the concept is just enough to convince yourself that you're right about anything you want to be right about.

It is quite simple: if you have two models which explains well the same observations but with contrary statements of the process, the simplest model is the correct.
 Quoting: glauco

As I suspected, you've got a simplistic understanding of Occam's Razor, by design to convince yourself that you're right.

Most people who invoke Occam's Razor fail to provide convincing evidence that their model is the simplest. In fact, they usually end up creating incredibly complex and convoluted arguments in an attempt to prove how simple their model is.

Quite often, it becomes quickly apparent that the only reason you think your solution is the simplest is because you have only a simplistic understanding of what you're talking about.
