    I find it more frustrating if you tell people that you have no clue that they start to encourage you to make assumptions.

    An engineer never makes assumptions

    Aside from the point that rational discourse depends on assumptions at some point(axioms) I think toonia makes some good points:

    Based on the media presentation of "fact" and "analysis" it can seem like people do not know how to form an assumption rationally or how to question it. When bombarded with complex information from every side as we do in modern life, there needs to be some system for filtering it into something manageable that can be processed within a human mind. Fear and familiarity become two of the most powerful systems for generating assumption. When this is how the original assumption is formed, then that is typically how it needs to be replaced. An individual must be able to recognize reason and then choose to implement it as a new way of forming assumption, and not everyone will do this, and it is possible that not everyone can do this.
    Yes, although I take issue with the description of "complex" information. Much of the information(if you can really call it such) we're bombarded with on a constant basis are far from complex, but largely are sound-bytes dressed up to look like infortmation. "White noise" is probably the better the term to use here.

    There's also a fundamental problem with many of the prevailing assumptions these days, especially that every perspective is just mere opinion, and that there is no general truth at all. When that's your starting point, then there really is not much to discuss to begin with. You have your truth, I have my truth - end of discussion. The whole basis for rational discourse has been eliminated.

    When our ancestors saw fire in the woods for the very first time, they must have thought it came from the gods. Note I'm making an assumption here myself. Bottomline we make up stuff for things we can't explain/understand.
    In science assumptions can lead to something, with higher probability if it's stems from a rational basis.

    Social assumptions are usually just the result of laziness, ignorance, superficialness, intelligence and/or upbringing/background etc. Impossible to pinpoint imo.
