SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

supposition (noun) assumption.

Supposition is something that you think is true though you are not sure of it and have no proof of it. When for example, you think that something you have lost has been stolen, though there is no proof for it, your supposition is that it has been stolen. The act of believing or claiming something though it cannot be proved is also supposition.
