It's Human nature.
But what we should not do is allow such ignorance to change the facts.
For some reason, as time goes on we forget that facts do not bend to the stupid, the ignorant, and the mentally incompetent. That because someone takes a tree and begins talking as if the tree was bubblegum, that does not make the tree any more chewy and delicious, nor does it make bubblegum wooden and leafy. One of these is a citation of the greatest description of human reasoning in the world, Occam's Razor.
Whenever I am in a discussion with some zealot fundie about some branch of science that they OBVIOUSLY don't understand, they will never fail to try an attempt at utilizing Occam's Razor in order to somehow say that, since "God dun it" is simpler than the highly complex mathematical equations and the piles of evidence and data gathered on the subject, then Occam's Razor says that God must have magically proofed this universe out of nothing.
This is the point where I usually throw a fit in my head. Picture, if you will, the feeling of opening your head and dumping broken glass into your brain, and then screwing back on your cranium. That is my exact feeling on the matter.
Firstly, that's not the correct application of Occam's Razor. It is not that the simplest answer is the correct one, but the most SIMPLE and LOGICAL answer is the correct one. Thus, the theory of *insert topic here* is the choice, because saying that an unprovable and incomprehensible Magic Cloud Man did it is illogical (and, frankly, just plain lazy).[example]
SECONDLY - that's not even what OCCAM'S RAZOR IS. Occam's Razor is nothing more than the definition of a mental path our mind automatically takes when confronted with several possible options - in which case the mind will take the least logical option and automatically remove it from the list of possible solutions. [def]
It's a DESCRIPTION of something that happens AUTOMATICALLY. It is not a reasoning tool. It is not an argument. Your brain does this every single time it is presented with conflicting or alternate options - it will automatically shake off any illogical options without notice or permission.
In short - please realize this: Occam's Razor is a description of an automatic process.
