The personal and social cost for diluting the definition of ‘truth’

By conflating objective-fact with mere opinion , we lose the means to address real issues, and in a rational way.

Moses is true and his Torah is true.

Jesus is the truth the way the light.

‘My’ truth.

Nothing can be know for certain (therefor all hypothesis are equally plausible).

One thought on “The personal and social cost for diluting the definition of ‘truth’

  1. But if all hypotheses are equally plausible and one hypothesis (A) claimed to be the truth whilst the others are false, how can that be true simultaneously with another (B) that claimed that all hypotheses are true? Surely we will have to test hypothesis A’s claims first to determine if it is plausible/ probable/ true. We cannot (uncritically) assume hypothesis B.

    Thinking out loud.
