If a bias is a point of view, then everyone with a point of view on something is biased. The question is contradictory.
In a court of law, eyewitnesses offer stronger testimony than non-eyewitnesses. Therefore, the biblical writers offer the best evidence for Jesus. “But they were very biased; they can’t be trusted!” The amount of bias is a consideration but not solely. Should the eyewitness testimony of Jewish holocaust survivors be rejected because they were very biased? Some Nazi’s and Muslim would say yes, but is that not due to their even greater bias? If one is going to reject all bias, if held consistently, they’d have to reject everyone’s testimony, their own testimony, and their own position.

- More teenagers embracing watered-down Christianity, author argues in new book.
- American teenagers are embracing “moralistic therapeutic deism.” Translation: It’s a watered-down faith that portrays God as a “divine therapist” whose chief goal is to boost people’s self-esteem.
- Most American teens who called themselves Christian were indifferent and inarticulate about their faith.
- “If teenagers lack an articulate faith, it may be because the faith we show them is too spineless to merit much in the way of conversation,” wrote Dean, a professor of youth and church culture at Princeton Theological Seminary.
- Who’s responsible for inspiring teens? Parents and pastors are, author says.

I require both.
Most Christians I know believe in evolution: the repeatable, observable, and falsifiable aspects. It’s the unrepeatable, unobservable, and unfalsifiable claims that have more to do with supporting atheism than scientific truth that we objection to. For example, how would one prove to an committed evolutionist than man and apes did not evolve from a common ancestor? It can’t be proven one way or the other – it’s an unfalsifiable claim and therefore, not a known scientific fact.
