An hypothesis is a supposition or proposed explanation made on the basis of limited evidence as a starting point for further investigation. In philosophy, it is a proposition made as a basis for reasoning, without any assumption of its truth.

Many apologists use the term "theory" in place of "hypothesis". This equivocation leads to the "Evolution is only a theory" argument.
