Surmise: noun, to suppose that something is true without having evidence to confirm it.”he surmised that something must be wrong.” See also: guess, conjecture, suspect.

I surmise that there is intelligent life form other than ourselves somewhere out there in the universe.

I surmise that there is a God, or some God or all the Gods out there somewhere.

I surmise that the Earth is actually flat.

I surmise that Brexit is a really good idea and will do wonders for the UK, and Boris is the greatest Prime Minister we’ve ever been lucky enough to have.

I surmise that I am over 6 foot, weigh under 70kg, look like I’m in my mid-20s and still have a full head of hair.

I surmise that Michael Jackson, Elvis and John Lennon are all still alive and have formed a supergroup in Timbuktu.

I surmise that there was a massive fraud in the US Presidential election in 2020.

I have no evidence for any of the above statements. Some of them you might think are true, some of them you might think are not true. I might have made some of them up. I’m just surmising. It’s the done thing these days.

  3. I surmise that Joe Biden has won both the popular vote and the Electoral College, but I also surmise that Donald Trump will not concede and will fight tooth and nail in the courts to have Biden’s victory invalidated. Actually, this is not technically me surmising, because there is, in fact, evidence to prove that it’s the case.

    1. He will fight it for sure, but too many States are falling against him and I think even some in the Republican party are now willing to cut him loose. It might get ugly, but it will get there.
