With an Edge

Seeing The Unseen, Part 2, is a passionate attack on conspiracy theories.

It opens like this:

Occam’s Razor is the idea that when confronted with competing theories that explain certain data equally well, the simplest one is usually correct. It’s called Occam’s Razor, and not Occam’s Hypothesis, or Occam’s Theorem, or Occam’s Bit of Useful Advice, because it is a razor – it cuts cleanly and with great efficiency.
Occam's bit of useful advice:
Needless complexity isn't nice.
