    should we base our results on reality or illusion? a random sample prevents bias

    spose i believe the earth is flat, and i want to prove it so i only accept data that does not go against my assumptions ... is this a fair experiment?

    then when we are in the search for what is real and true, a random sample allows us to base the results on something other than our own assumptions. how you put this is up to you

    if i claim that 98% of my product is safe for kittens, then the sample taken should be random so that a real and factual account can be determined. this is why third party investigations are also required ....
