I am reminded of an old adage, which appropriately paraphrased goes: The simplest explanation is most likely the correct one. Yeah right. The fact that this idea is falsely, yet officially, attributed to William of Ockham should wake just a little skepticism as to the soundness of its application; that is, unless the simplest explanation is the most convenient one at the time. Explanations change with the times, after all.
