That act of the mind whereby it takes or acknowledges any proposition to be true or false. There are three degrees of assent: conjecture, opinion, and belief. Conjecture is but a slight and weak inclination to assent to the thing proposed, by reason of the weighty objections that lie against it. Opinion is a more steady and fixed assent; when a man is almost certain, though yet some fear of the contrary remains with him. Belief is a more full and assured assent to the truth.

See BELIEF.
