I get this kind of response quite a bit, the assumption that I even have
axioms about the truth.

Well, I do hold the axiom that the truth is demonstrable, in whatever
form. And that the supernatural is not. With the result that I do not
hold the supernatural to be truth.

I do not for one second consider C.S. Lewis a 'questioning' kind of guy.
Rather the opposite. He is the archetypical apologist.

I usually don't question death or taxes either.
