What is “Bias”?

Prejudice

in favor of or against one thing, person, or group compared with another, usually in a way considered to be unfair.Slide8

The truth about “Lucy”

http://www.apologeticspress.org/pdfs/reprints_pdf/truthlucy.pdf

“…All of these facts point toward the truth that Lucy was simply an ape- like creature.CONCLUSIONYou might be asking yourself why this charade has been allowed to go

on for so long. The answer woven around power, fame, and money can be found in

Johanson’s

own words. ‘There is no such thing as a total lack of bias. I have it; everybody has it. The fossil hunter in the field has it. In everybody who is looking for hominids there is a strong urge to learn more about where the human line started. If you are working back at around three million, as I was, that is very seductive, because you begin to get an idea that that is where Homo did start. You begin straining your eyes to find Homo traits in fossils of that age. Logical, maybe, but also biased. I was trying to jam evidence of dates into a pattern that would support conclusions about fossils which, on closer inspection, the fossils themselves would not sustain’ (Johanson and Edey, 1981, pp. 57,258,emp.added).He went on to admit: ‘It is hard for me now to admit how tangled in that thicket I was. But the insidious thing about bias is that it does make one deaf to the cries of other evidence (p. 277). In the March 1996 issue of National Geographic, Dr. Johanson himself admitted: ‘Lucy has recently been dethroned (189[3]:117). His fifteen minutes of fame had ended. AsLee Berger declared: ‘One might say we are kicking Lucy out of the family tree (as quoted in Shreeve, 1996). Isn’t it ironic how often that family tree gets pruned and trimmed?” Vocabulary bias – prejudice thicket – “bush” dethroned – loss of position seductive - tempting insidious - evil, wrong or bad Slide9

 Ancient Roman historian

nothing that is true. Moreover, there shall be no suspicion of

partiality

in his writing, or of malice.”Vocabulary Termsutter – saysuppress – hide or cover uppartiality – favoritism, prejudice or biasmalice – evil intent, doing something on purpose to do harm
