ASSUMPTIONS
[ Also see Theories ]

Euclid taught me that without assumptions there is no proof. Therefore, in any argument, examine the assumptions.
      - Eric Temple Bell,
        "Return to Mathematical Circles" by H. Eves

The invalid assumption that correlation implies cause is probably among the two or three most serious and common errors of human reasoning.
      - Stephen Jay Gould

Never assume the obvious is true.
      - William Safire

Occam's Razor: No more things should be presumed to exist than are absolutely necessary, i.e., the fewer assumptions an explanation of a phenomenon depends on, the better the explanation.
  [Lat., Entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem.]
      - William of Occam

Plurality should not be presumed unnecessarily.
  [Lat., Pluralitas non est ponenda sine necessitate.]
      - William of Occam
