(1) ATTENTIONAL BIAS - When someone focuses on only one or two choices despite there being multiple options or outcomes.
In the case of flipping a coin, landing on
its edge may a very unlikely (but still possible) event, thus "heads or
tails" seems an adequate set of options. However in typical coin
tosses under uncontrolled conditions subject to human error, up to 30%
of tosses actually result in disputes, due to insufficient
specification of how to handle 'mis-tosses' etc. Often coins and dice
fly off tables, people violate fair tosses in attempts to influence
outcome, and uneven surfaces or poor tossing cause ambiguous rolls.
Evolutionist propagandists attempt similar
choice restrictions concerning possible options when they insist (a)
that their personal theories are true, and (b) that the only
alternative choice is 'Young-Earth Creationism', or non-scientific
superstition, and (c) they refuse to investigate alternative
possibilities and/or variations on the accepted versions of the
(2) The Availability Heuristic - is where people overestimate the importance of limited information that is available to them.
One example would be a person who argues that
smoking is not unhealthy on the basis that his grandfather lived to 100
and smoked three packs a day, an argument that ignores the possibility
that his grandfather was an 'outlier', i.e., a person lying
statistically near the edges of a more complete bell curve.
Evolutionists have historically viewed
mankind as 'descending' from early apes, on the basis of broad and
superficial similarities, such as bilateral symmetry, mammalian
classification, toe-counts, bipedalism, depth perspective, when recent
evidence suggests several overriding problems with this view: (a) lack
of a clear geographical basis for the evolution, (b) lack of
transitional forms for a history, (c) complexity of the DNA evidence
and its accompanying problems, (d) the general statistical similarity
of DNA across very divergent and distantly related animals, (e) lack of
a coherent treatment or scientific methodology for measuring
similarity or difference in DNA coding.
(3) Backfire effect - When you reject evidence that contradicts your point of view or statement, even if you know it's true.
A good example of this
is how Evolutionists have treated the question of Birds and their
evolution. Early fossils were first regarded as 'transitional' forms
on a path from dinosaur/reptile to modern bird. Subsequently true bird
fossils were discovered anti-dating those alleged transitional fossils
by millions of years. Yet no significant revision of the theory or
the position of birds on the Evolutionary Tree as descendants of
dinosaurs has been made.
(4) Bandwagon effect -
The probability of one person adopting a belief increases based on the
number of people who hold that belief. This is a powerful form of
appeal to 'the majority of scientists' supposed allegiance to standard
Evolutionary theory (i.e., Darwinism and 'Natural Selection'), when
the true situation is far more likely to be similar to the personal
commitment of individuals found in surveying religions and
denominations. That is, the majority of people will be uncommitted or
uninterested in the question, with population numbers rapidly dwindling
as commitment to the ideology rises, and detailed knowledge is
required. As in all politics, people will tend to sign onto the Status Quo position for reasons of expediency regardless of their personal commitments.
(5) Belief bias - A
bias where people make faulty conclusions based on what they already
believe or know. For instance, one might conclude that all tiger sharks
are sharks, and all sharks are animals, and therefore all animals are
Just as people tend to
uncritically accept the beliefs and opinions of their culture and
educational system for long periods in their lives, so associations
will also bias belief.
Evolution is widely
believed among those educated in the West, because it has been made an
important part of their curriculum and it has been heavily associated
with science and technology, even though 90% of scientific knowledge
and technological advance has no basis in Evolutionary theory, and the
belief in Evolution is not required for or relevant to any modern
scientific discipline or technology.
(6) Bias blind spots - If you fail to realize your own
cognitive biases, you have a bias blind spot. Everyone thinks they're
not as biased as people may think, which is a cognitive bias itself.
Independent tests for
bias however show that all individuals have significant biases that
prevent them from making accurate observations or logical conclusions.
Evolutionists are no exceptions.
(7) Choice-supportive bias - A bias in which you think positive
things about a choice once you made it, even if that choice has flaws.
You may say positive things about the dog you just bought and ignore
that the dog bites people.
Here is a classic bias
Atheists have which is very transparent. Evolution is the preferred
theory because it suggests that people are not morally or ethically
answerable to any higher authority. There would be no consequences
for immoral or unethical behavior beyond interference by others in
competition for resources and power. A criminal in such an ethical
vacuum does not have remorse for crime but simply regrets getting
(8) Clustering illusion - To conclude that data contains a "streak" or "cluster" when that set is actually random.
For instance in
basketball, the hot hand effect is the belief that a player who has hit
several shots in a row is more likely to hit the next shot.
This is also called the gambler's fallacy, where one thinks a winning number is "due."
Like many probability illusions, the
Clustering Illusion is based on faulty reasoning and estimates of
probability, due to a misunderstanding of forces and constraints.
Evolution is a NON-predictive 'theory'
because nothing that has occurred before or which can be presumed to be
true can be used to predict what direction things will evolve in next.
Because its entirely unpredictive beyond the vaguest
generalizations, it is not a true scientific theory in any practical
sense. Scientific theories are falsifiable, because they have specific
consequences which bear on their accuracy and truth.
One can study 'Evolution' endlessly and fail
to predict or discover any subsequent event in its specific form, which
would substantiate the key elements of the theory.
(9) Confirmation bias - A tendency people have to believe certain information that confirms what they think or believe in.
This bias is well-known, and is why
Evolutionists insist on teaching their theories and beliefs to
children, while they are not yet in a state of critical thinking, and
are vulnerable to accepting falsehoods and unsubstantiated claims.
If an Evolutionist has been brought up in the
Western educational system, it is likely that he is heavily biased in
favour of the theory, because these thinking patterns have been formed
long before he developed a capacity for critical thinking.
In general, a person who has no personal
experience with or has paid no attention to directed, controlled or
guided forces in their life will tend to believe that such forces do
not exist, even when they are actually operating.
A person who does not detect authorities
collecting intelligence on them, monitoring their activities, or
guiding their employment opportunities, will not suspect or believe
that governments and authorities do in fact engage in such activities
in significant amounts. When suddenly confronted with the idea, that
person will reject it out of hand as 'paranoia' or 'conspiracy theory'
(10) Conservatism bias -
Where people believe prior evidence more than new evidence or
information that emerged. People were slow to accept the fact that the
earth was round because they tended to believe earlier information that
it was flat.
This type of bias is seen strongly among proponents of
Evolutionary theory, whereby 'Natural Selection' continues to be
heralded as the most important or only force at work in real evolution,
even though this idea, was conceived by Malthus and Darwin long before
there was anything like a scientific method or framework to evaluate
All subsequent evidence that goes against 'Natural
Selection' or suggests other forces might be at work that are just as
powerful is dismissed as irrelevant, as though the theory was born
'perfect' at its inception at the dawn of the scientific era.
