The Preponderance of Evidence

I am having this bizarre, deeply intellectual, bordering on philosophical conversation about:
Is that what you want to be true, or does the preponderance of evidence show that it is?
To me this is a sarcastic, rhetorical question, meant to undermine the credibility of the person being asked.

The other party claims that it's a perfectly legitimate, and neutral way to inquire as to bias.

When I retold this to M this morning she said: "It's a ridiculously vague question, because it doesn't  define what constitues evidence or what satisfies "preponderance".
