Michael Dickens connects two quotes which belong together. First there’s Occam’s Razor:
Never increase, beyond what is necessary, the number of entities required to explain anything
And then Einstein’s superbly adds the missing qualification:
Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler.
In both of these statements of the importance of parsimony are the reasons why Intelligent Design does not qualify as a good example of a the sort of “simple” explanation philosophy and science look for.
