Apodictic

Apodictic – adj. formal clearly established or beyond dispute.

What a sweet word!  If you think the adjective is cool, try out the abstract noun, apodicticity.  Nice.  I guess it has some philosophical significance.  Check it out on wikipedia.  Apparently, apodictic forms a triad along with assertoric and problematic, as types of propositions.

Apodictic Information Services definitely tries to use its namesake to sell its services.
