Hitchens's razor - Wikipedia Hitchens's razor is an epistemological razor asserting that the burden of proof regarding the truthfulness of a claim lies with the one who makes the claim, and if this burden is not met, the claim is unfounded, and its opponents need not argue further in order to dismiss it.
Did ole Chris ever apply the 'razor' to some of his own arguments, like "women aren't funny" and can't be 'real' comedians? He was little more than an educated, arrogant, pompous ass who chose the right time to exit from this world...as he had already outlived his usefulness to his patrons at A.E.I., and the American public started catching up with the rest of the world on all the things wrong with a superpower declaring it has the right to regime change the Middle East more to its liking!

my grand parents were very wise and smart people they were honest and worked hard they never finshed hifh school they were poor, my parents went to college they were upper middle class we went to graduate school our real income adjusted for inflation s about double theirs every genration got a bit more educated and every genraion did better you are right my uneducated grandparents? were real smart people maybe smarter than us.. the point is .. we were told to get a god education so we would not be poor.. thats what smart un educated people told us to do we did it.. we are no longer poor we are rich.. because of education
I go to Wikipedia also for information, but I don't consider it an infallible source!
It is more questionable as time goes on, because its editorial process favours the most motivated and active editors! Try to find an honest and unbiased article (without huge gaps) on Wikipedia on the subject of Palestinian/Israeli history of the 20th century for example. Each article tells me that Israeli and allied editors have an almost instant presence to eliminate information they consider not to their liking!
What's worse is that there have been small, minor characters usually trying to just go about their lives, who have raised the ire of large corporate institutions...such as drug companies and oil and gas companies...who attack them by way of having their personal wikipedia pages maliciously edited.

Occam's Razor should only be used on rare occasions.
