Well, you also said that you think that the scene exists, despite also saying that the one in question is probably not it, and despite having no idea what it is. In implying what you think is probably true by alluding to Occam's Razor, you did more than merely speculate.
All right, I see what you're saying. I was offering the presence of the passage in the book as evidence for such a scene existing. I was a bit sloppy with my words there, attribute it to the fact that evidence and proof is the same word in Swedish if you want.

Moreover, based on what you said, I don't see any reason whatsoever to suppose that the scene exists. Occam's Razor applied in that instance doesn't yield the result you suggest, since your list of simpler possible explanations for the error [...] isn't complete.
Feel free to offer more.
