Definition of Presumption:

  1. An idea that is taken to be true, and often used as the basis for other ideas, although it is not known for certain.

  2. Behavior perceived as arrogant, disrespectful, and transgressing the limits of what is permitted or appropriate.

  3. In law, assumption or inference that a fact exists, on the basis of the known existence of other fact(s). Although a presumption shifts the burden of proof from the party it favors to the opposing party, almost every presumption is a rebuttable presumption allowed only until it is not proven wrong.
