Occam's razor is not only the simplist explanation, but _the
simplist explanation that best conforms to the available
evidence._ Big difference. God being all-knowing and making us
out of mud 6000 years ago is a much simpler explanation than
billions of years of evolution, with all its various lines of
evidence involving physics, astrophysics, chemistry,
biochemistry, genetics, comparative anatomy, etc. But Evolution
through natural selection best fits the pile of evidence that's
been accumulated by science over the last two hundred years.
Evolution wins the Occam's razor contest. God's a loser.

In the case of Roswell, option "A" has a couple of shady,
unnamed, self-admitted counterintelligence people telling a
story contradicted by the historical record (e.g., use of
deformed Chinese survivors of Japanese medical experiments
captured by the Americans - total bunk). Also, the "informants"
cannot establish anything that would indicate that would
actually have any knowledge of the events that they claim, i.e.,
being directly involved or having a documented direct
relationship with somebody who would have been involved.
Further, many aspects of the story directly contradict one
another (was it deformed Chinese or Kamikaze Japanese POW
pilots? - God, it is so hard to keep those informants
revelations straight) and the "explanation" does not fit the
reported testimony of the Roswell case, such as highly anomalous

Option B has witnesses by the scores to strange debris, alien
bodies, and a spacecraft, mostly ordinary people, mostly named,
mostly able to document direct involvement by being at Roswell
in 1947 or related/friends of same. Many of the witnesses were
military people or their families with documented direct
involvement or who we know were there: Marcel, Haut, Shirkey,
Smith, Henderson, Dubose, to name but a few.

Therefore, IMHO, option B wins hands down in the Occam's razor
contest by being the simplist explanation of the two that _best
conforms to the available evidence._
