To be willing to die for an idea is to set a rather high price on conjecture.
- Anatole France

Isn't "conjecture" a wonderful word?

conjecture -- con·jec·ture   
the formation or expression of an opinion or theory without sufficient evidence for proof.
an opinion or theory so formed or expressed; guess; speculation.

We believe things so fiercely because they are all conjecture. If they were true, there would be no need for strong belief.

yes, it is a wonderful word.

"I am somebody."

"This world exists."

"Fear is real."

These are some of my conjectures.
How insinuating they are! Like oily snakes I give free rent in my clean pool.
