    Hello Steve,

    This raises an interesting question about why we adhere to the
    presuppositions that we have and not others. If it is a matter of faith,
    then what is it that makes a person choose one set of presuppositions over
    another? I even wonder if we really make conscious decisions over the
    presuppositions that we have, or were these so subtly instilled in us
    through our upbringing that we (in general) are not aware of the influences
    that led to where we are today?
