Confirmation Bias — The New Conspiracy Theory

What is the difference between confirmation bias and simply confirmation?

If I find a document detailing the agreement between two gangsters to rob a bank, that is reason to look for more proof of this suspected crime. According to this new concept of confirmation bias I’m now supposed to look for evidence that disproves my suspicion. If I don’t then I’m guilty of confirmation bias, and since that’s a psychological tendency — a flaw “we all are guilty of” — it’s dismissed as… a conspiracy theory.

You’ve no idea how hard I’ve looked for a gift to bring You. Nothing seemed right. What’s the point of bringing gold to a goldmine, or water to the ocean. Everything I came up with was like taking spices to the Orient. It’s no good giving my heart and soul, because You already have these. So – I’ve brought You a mirror. Look at Yourself and remember me.

- Jalaluddin Rumi
