PRESUPPOSITIONS - A Quote from Graeme Goldsworthy

"Presuppositions, then, are the assumptions we make in order to be able to hold some fact to be true. We cannot go on indefinitely saying, “1 know this is true because...” In the end we must come to that which we accept as the final authority. By definition a final authority cannot be proven as an authority on the basis of some higher authority. The highest authority must be self-attesting. Only God is such an authority."

- Graeme Goldsworthy, According to Plan, 44.
