    Is anyone here able to self-diagnose some imagination bias?

    I feel that I have to put my hand up to this to some extent. Most of my beliefs about God stem from a genuine faith, but sometimes I do think that I stretch that to include some level of assumption which could, I suppose, be articulated as "imagination" although may be a bit harsh as it implies deliberate self delusion, which I most certainly do not do to myself.

    You couldn't formulate anything new without an imagination, I don't think that
    "imagination bias" is real its just bias. As soon as we lay claim to some truth we
    start adjusting everything new to fit in what think already, a bias.

    Another form of bias is thumbing down the poster instead of the post.
