New York, New York: The idea here is that a simple theory applies to more cases than a more complex one, and is thus more easily falsifiable.

On a commonly accepted repeatability principle, these alternative theories have never been observed and continue to escape observation.

In turn, Aquinas answers this with the quinque viaeand addresses the particular objection above with the following answer:. Since nature works for a determinate end under the direction of a higher agent, whatever is done by nature must needs be traced back to God, as to its first cause. Keep track of everything you watch; tell your friends. It is also concerned with their classification.

Biologists or philosophers of biology use Occam’s razor in either of two contexts both in evolutionary biology: Archived from the original on 1 March Various arguments in favor of God establish God as a useful or even necessary assumption.

In science, Occam’s razor is used as an abductive heuristic in the development of theoretical models, rather than as a rigorous arbiter between candidate models.

Smart invoked Occam’s razor with the aim to justify his preference of the mind-brain identity theory over spirit-body dualism. In this case, as it turned out, neither the wave—nor the particle—explanation alone suffices, as light behaves like waves and like particles.

The df of God are not open to reason, for God has freely chosen to create a world and establish a way of salvation within it apart from any necessary laws that human logic or rationality can uncover.

This is again comparing a simple theory to a more complex theory where both explain the data equally well. Bertrand Russell offers a particular version of Occam’s razor: For each accepted explanation of a phenomenon, there may be an extremely large, perhaps even incomprehensible, number of possible and more complex alternatives.


But it seems that everything we see in the world can be accounted for by other principles, supposing God did not exist.
