The vast majority of intellectual thought in our politics, newsrooms, scientific journals, schools, seminaries, and universities starts with some assumption, axiom, or worldview. Assumptions, axioms, and worldviews all consist of the same sort of stuff–made-up stuff.

However, it’s an inaccurate picture since the twist-tie represents a single assumption, but twist-ties are infinitely stronger than assumptions. Assumptions have all the strength of hot air, but how do you make a picture of hot air?
