What is the name of the bias where people focus on how a hypothesis answers a question instead of how not?
I am not looking for confirmation bias.
The specific example deals with how people were so sure Napoleon was the antichrist or how the rapture was going to happen in AD 1000.
Im interested in something that describes people ascribing a current event of significance as like the fulfillment of a prophesy or something.
