What is "truth"
Hello. My name is Ross; I am from Brussels, Belgium, and have lived across the United States. I was a soccer player for a few years, dabbled in mathematics and attended some classes at Michigan State University.
Hello. My name is Matthew; I am from the Detroit area of Michigan. I love basically any activity in the outdoors. I am a videographer and photographer and a proud Butler University grad.
Both of the above statements are true in some respect. However, the second would be considered truer than the first. My middle name is Ross, my relatives are from Belgium, I have lived across the United States in that my family moved to Atlanta for two years when I was in elementary school, I played soccer for two years when I was in pre-school and kindergarten and was required to take math courses all throughout primary school. And I have gone to Michigan State University to take classes as part of a summer journalism workshop while I was in high school.
The point is that while all that may be true, there are many different versions of the same truth...
everything has some truth based in it; one just has to find it.
Truth changes, albeit slowly, but it does change. It used to be true that the planet Earth was flat, but then people realized that was the wrong “truth.”
The reason for stories being deemed “true” is based upon the widely held facts and generalizations that support it.
So then, what is truth?
Merriam Webster says there are nine different definitions of the word “true” and four definitions of the word “truth.” With so many different definitions of one concept is it possible that one is the actual definition or that the truth is even true?
All around the world, there are going to be different truths, all of them based similar subjects yet all different none the less. With all these truths, it is fair to say that there really is nothing that is true and nothing that is false, it is all subjective to what one believes.
