I'm sure we could have a fruitful discussion about the proper form of Occam's Razor, generally speaking it is taken slightly differently than the precise wording attributed to William of Occam.

However, shanerg's post includes several questions answered explicitly and prominently in the post to which ey is responding. Based on this, I expected that a lengthy philosophical response would be wasted.
