When you hear hoofbeats, you should assume it's horses, not zebras. Or, for that matter, unicorns.

One of the common illustrations for adults, but which should work just as well for kids, is hoofbeats. In short, when you hear hoofbeats, you should assume it's horses, not zebras. Or, for that matter, unicorns.Do you think this illustrates Occam's Razor or just that 'common things are common'?




As I know you know, Occam's Razor says you shouldn't multiply your hypotheses (unnecessarily). So, if applied to the "sound of hoofbeats" it might say something along the lines of, "if you hear hoofbeats should you think that A) someone has a tape recording of hoofbeats, knows your listening, and knows also how to adjust the volume and timing of the sounds so that they mimic the naturally occurring hoofbeats of horses coming OR B) horses are coming?
