## What is an axiom?

What is an axiom? Here is my definition:

An axiom is a principle believed to be certain

When a person reasons about something, sometimes a good starting point is to establish the axioms. In this regard, axioms build an unshakable foundation upon which a person can think about something. By making the axioms clear and established, I believe that a person can have a better chance of determining truth beyond the axioms.
