How to use "Pre-suppositions" in context?

Pre-suppositions are assumptions made by the speaker before they have given any evidence to back up their claims. They are often implied, not stated. Pre-suppositions can be harmful because they influence the way listeners think, and they can lead to inaccurate predictions.

One example of a pre-supposition is the assumption that all people are rational. This assumption is accepted without evidence, and it is used to support subsequent claims. It is often used to assert that people are logical, which assumes that logical thinking is the norm. This assumption can lead listeners to accept conclusions without considering other possible explanations.
