Razor #6: Newton’s Flaming Laser Sword

Newton’s Flaming Laser Sword:

If something cannot be settled
by experiment or observation,
then it is not worthy of debate.


Life is too short to debate
in the first place,
on what is unverifiable
at the end of the day.


(In philosophy, a razor is a principle or rule of thumb that allows one to eliminate (‘shave off’) unlikely explanations for a phenomenon, or avoid unnecessary actions.)
