All Rise: Recognizing a Biased Witness or a Biased Jury, Part 1


When assessing a claim, we often look at the testimonies of witnesses, including experts. But how can we tell if a witness is being biased toward one side or the other? Do we sometimes give too much weight to someone’s opinion just because they happen to have expertise in a certain area? And what about jurors—those whose responsibilities are to come to a verdict? Can they be biased as well? Abdu will walk us through how to think about these issues. As we look at the claims and objections regarding spiritual claims, we have to be on the lookout not only for the biased witnesses, but also our own biases.
