The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc: A Sword in a Field
  • Psychology → Cognitive Bias → Confirmation Bias

Joan believes that a sword lying in a field is a sign, and The Conscience contends that it wasn't a sign; it was just a sword in a field. The Conscience explains several ways that a sword may have found itself in a field to illustrate to Joan that she filtered out all other possibilities in order to support her beliefs.
