According to a widely accepted philosophical principle known as Ockham’s Razor, “It is vain to do more with more what can be done with fewer” (William of Ockham). In other words, the simplest solution is usually the correct one, so we should never posit the existence of more entities than needed when providing an explanation of things. In the face of the apparent “fine-tuning” of the universe, proponents of the fine-tuning argument posit the existence of God in order to explain the orderliness and complexity of the universe while many opponents of the argument posit the existence of a very large number of multiple universes to explain the apparent “fine-tuning.” Of these two options, which do you think is more in tune with the principle of Ockham’s Razor and why?
