The Inverted Occam's Razor is an ironic metapher for an inverted use of minimalistic principles in science. This principle is often used in pseudo-scientific argumentation claiming that improbable causes and causal chains made a phenomenon plausible. Typical examples are the study of crop circle phenomena (Cereology) and of UFOs.
