Yeah science

Nice, though I'm annoyed that people still get Occam's Razor backwards.  Theories with fewer parameters are better because they're easier to prove *false*.'s_razor

I'm sorry, but "more likely to be true" isn't really a scientific statement, as the last panel makes clear.  If we could get over that, we'd have a lot less silly debates.

The most important rule in science: Correlation is not causation.

I do like your simple statement of Occam's razor:

Less parameters in an experiment means easier to prove *false*.

If there was something I could wish for today's children, it would be scientific literacy.
