evidence filtering

The instinctive tendency to form a preconceived belief and then (1) Construe any evidence consistent with the belief to prove that belief, and (2) Non-falsify or make up excuses to ignore evidence inconsistent with the belief.  The psychological term is “assimilation bias”; “evidence filtering” coined by SF.
