More on Bias

Now, we’ve said before, that the notion of bias looks as though it were some remedy for the scientific problem of having a perspective.

But simply revealing the source of your view, and therefore further elucidating the context of observation, does not revoke the validity of a perspective, but rather enhances it.

So that if we were to construct an imaginary experiment to demonstrate the existence of god, we can set up two apparently biased perspectives, an atheist and a theist.

But lets say the atheist finds evidence of god.

And lets say the theist finds negating evidence.

That it in itself is noteworthy, on both counts, and rather than apparent “biases” diminishing the results of the experiment it does the opposite it, enhances it, because they both found contrary to what they were looking for, and because we are aware of the context of observation, we see significance in the research that we would not see, had we been dealing with so called “non-biased observers.”

Now lets say they repeat the study, and this time the atheist finds evidence contrary, and the theist finds evidence supporting.

Now, on the one hand, our old notions of bias seem to account for this perfectly, and we can dismiss both accounts, because our notions of bias seems do explaining for us.

But hold off for a second, we already saw the results of the previous experiment, and they had each found evidence contrary to their position.

So as if we saw the latter study in isolation, we could simply revert to our old notion of bias to explain the results away, but now its not so simple.

Because we’ve properly seen the context of observation in both sets of studies, now we are able to see what is noteworthy, not only about the observed, but about the observer.

And I’ll take it as a simple contestable premise, that better observers, perform better experiments.

Anyway, as far as the imaginary experiment, the atheist continued to be an atheist and the theist continued to be a theist.

But, we should also give ear to the traditional non biased view.

In this example, two agnostics would supposedly be best for collecting data.

Well, we tried it, and they are still waiting for the evidence.

I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
