English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. certainty

    Demonstration, in the strict and proper sense, is the highest form of proof, and gives the most absolute certainty, but can not be applied outside of pure mathematics or other strictly deductive reasoning; there can be proof and certainty, however, in matters that do not admit of demonstration. A conclusion is the absolute and necessary result of the admission of certain premises; an inference is a probable conclusion toward which known facts, statements, or admissions point, but which they do not absolutely establish; sound premises, together with their necessary conclusion, constitute a demonstration. Evidence is that which tends to show a thing to be true; in the widest sense, as including self-evidence or consciousness, it is the basis of all knowledge. Proof in the strict sense is complete, irresistible evidence; as, there was much evidence against the accused, but not amounting to proof of guilt. Moral certainty is a conviction resting on such evidence as puts a matter beyond reasonable doubt, while not so irresistible as demonstration. Compare HYPOTHESIS; INDUCTION.

    conclusion, consequence, deduction, demonstration, evidence, induction, inference, proof

  1. Syngenta Chairman Michel Demare:

  3. John Bercow:

    If we come close to being there I would imagine that parliament would want to cut off such a possibility and to do so forcefully, if that demands additional procedural creativity in order to come to pass it is a racing certainty that this will happen and that neither the limitations of the existing rulebook nor the ticking of the clock will stop it doing so.

  4. Mary Hassell:

    Although her general fluctuating( mental) state was a background and important in her death, I find the reason for her taking her life was she now knew she was being prosecuted for certainty, and she knew she would face the media, press, publicity -- it would all come down upon her.

  5. Dr Arnold:

    In many situations heuristics work well by getting us to the correct answer quickly and efficiently, however, because they are rules of thumb (e.g., not like an algorithm/formula that produces a correct answer with certainty) they do not guarantee we will be right because they are open to biases.
