I use my own razor, thank you very much ;)
Ok, the expanding universe.
You either assume gravity behaves a certain way or you assume there is dark matter. Either way, there's a lot of assumptions that go into each of those two.
Or...., you assume God did it ;)
By Okham's razor, God is the simplest solution. Hell, there's no math involved! How simple is that ;)
I am NOT saying there is a better way. I am saying that we must NOT forget that experiments demonstrate only one possible explanation.
Say you have something you don't understand. You come up with an explanation (theory). You come up with a test for your theory. Your experiment shows that the theory works. But there could be a competing theory and an experiment that shows that that theory also works.
The take home message is that once we have a working theory, we shouldn't be complacent and accept it as the ONLY explanation. ;)
