Quote# 1398

Want to invoke occam's razor? Cats evolved into cats? Or a microbe involved into intermediate... things which continued to evolve and evolve and evolve through simple cells, complex cells, fish, amphibians, reptiles, basic mamals, to cats. Hmmmm....

Occam's razor doesn't imply the shortest response...just the most likely/simplest. And seeing how some divine being hasn't poofed some bizarre, never before seen creature in existence since the beginning of time, evolution seems more likely.

evolution doesn't work that way! And Occam's razor postulates removing everything not proven to be necessary

BUt it is the RR fuck-wit fundies....

But then you must assume that all animals happened to be created simultaneously, which involves a very complicated creator whose existence has not even been proved.

What'd I Do

As previously stated, Occam's Razor does not say, "Pick the one that you can say in a single breath and that's the one most likely to be true." It says "Pick the one that relies on the fewest assumptions and possesses the fewest gaps in observation and that's the one most likely to be true."
