"Suspension of belief" is a new term proposed by intelligence researcher Charles Murray:

  • I propose a new term: 'suspension of belief,' defined as "basing a public-policy stance on an assumption about human beings that one knows to be untrue of oneself." Do you suppose Jeanne Allen believes herself capable of learning to the highest level if we're talking, say, about quantum mechanics? Of course not. Only a few silly people who have never tested themselves are under the illusion that they have no educational limits.
