Primary assumption of risk acts as a complete bar to a plaintiff's recovery on a negligence claim as it acts to remove one of the elements of negligence, i.e., the defendant's alleged duty to the plaintiff.
Although primary assumption of risk operates as a complete bar to a cause of action based upon negligence, the risk that allegedly caused the damage must be a risk that was specifically known and appreciated by the plaintiff.

The psi assumption is the assumption that any significant departure from the laws of chance in a test of psychic ability is evidence that something anomalous or paranormal has occurred.
The psi assumption has been made by many parapsychologists since the scientific investigation of psychic phenomena began in earnest with the establishment of the Society for Psychical Research in 1882.
Another example of the psi assumption can be found in the work of S. Soal (1889-1975), a mathematician at Queen Mary College, London University, who aimed to improve on Rhine’s rather sloppy methods by systematically excluding what sensory leakage (non-telepathic communication) and deception of any kind in his ESP experiments.

 The Assumption of Mary   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-10)
Catholic authors readily admit that the Assumption is not explicitly taught in Scripture.[1] In the biblical narrative, Mary is last mentioned in Acts 1 where she is found praying with the other disciples before Pentecost.
The first church author to speak on the assumption, Gregory of Tours, based his teaching on the Transitus, perhaps because he accepted it as genuine.[4] However, in 459 A.D. Pope Gelasius issued a decree that officially condemned and rejected the Transitus along with several other heretical writings.
Pope Hormisdas reaffirmed this decree in the sixth century.[5] It is ironic that this heretical teaching was later promoted within the Catholic Church, until eventually it was proclaimed a dogma in the twentieth century.

 Mary's Assumption   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-10)
That early Christian believed in Mary's Assumption is proven in the lack of her relics, empty tombs, the existence of Transitus Mariae stories, and quotes from early Christians.
If the Assumption of Mary were a novel belief at the time, we would expect to find Christian writers of the third to fifth centuries condemning it as a newfangled heresy.
The Assumption is essentially the same as what Evangelicals call the "rapture"; we could even say that Mary was "raptured" into heaven at the end of her life.

 How to Argue for Mary's Assumption (This Rock: May-June 2001)
Belief in the assumption of Mary is simply the belief that God granted her this gift early, as he appears to have done for others in Matthew 27:52-53.
With this in mind, it would be unscriptural and unreasonable to conclude that the dogma of Mary's Assumption is false because it is not mentioned explicitly in Scripture.
In fact, the first opposition to the Assumption cannot be found until Ambrosius Autpertus of the eighth century.
