Occam's razor is a scientifical law
No, it's not. It's more of a statement of common sense.

And "scientifical?" really? that's not even a word.
Yes, it is. It's a probabilistic scientifical law.
No, it's not a law. It's a guide.
In science, Occam's razor is used as a heuristic (general guiding rule or an observation) to guide scientists in the development of theoretical models rather than as an arbiter between published models.[9][10] In the scientific method, Occam's razor is not considered an irrefutable principle of logic, and certainly not a scientific result.

Not a scientific law.

And 'scientifical' is a word - despite your failed attempt to grab at irrelevant semantic straws.
Your right, it is a word. An antiquated form of scientific. Pretty much deprecated to the point of non-use. Are you trying to bring it back like Sexy?
