I don't think i'm as political an animal as yourself, sb. I refer to Occam's razor because of a link posted by Asian-American that contained the following by John Bryant:Quote by: Starboy
"As I pointed out in my book Systems Theory and Scientific Philosophy, science is actually a religion: Its faith involves such beliefs as that the future will be like the past in certain ways, that explanations should be based on objectively- verifiable evidence, and that the best explanation is the simplest one which fits all the facts ("the Law of Parsimony")."
It got me thinking, hence the thread.My bet is you are once again lying. The reader is refered to the consciousness thread to observe the fact that sb is more aware of names than of content.My bet is that you don’t even know what Ockham’s razor is.You have no idea what i presume.What are you talking about? Are you presuming that a perfect intellect would have no choice?I can tell you i would not presume what it would be like to have perfect intellect; i'll let you handle that.That would only be the case if that intellect possessed perfect knowledge. I suppose it never occurred to you that it is not possible for a perfect intellect to know if it has perfect knowledge.Good luck with that.:)Thus it will most likely be forced or required at some time in its life to make a choice that in the end is either the result of unconscious desires, educated guess or random chance.
