    Facts are a result of absolute truth.

    Stupid question. If something is not true, it cannot be a fact. If it is true, it cannot NOT be a fact.

    Admit yer wrong, and move on. :thumbs:

    I'd admit I was wrong if I were wrong. But it just so happens that once again, you're wrong.

    Facts are situational. Absolute truth is not.

    So I stand by what I said: fact does not equal absolute truth.

    Not correct. Facts are the result of any truth. Only absolute truth yields absolute facts.

    So.....there are facts and absolute facts which are completely different. There there is truth and absolute truth which also are completely different.


    Truth yields facts and absolute truth yields absolute facts.



    For crying out loud is that what I am reading?

    I don't know what you're reading. The letters on the screen are in black so you may have a problem with that given your aversion to things that are black. Could be hindering your reading.

    I agree....sort of. Facts are the best facsimilie of absolute truth that we are able to identify. But there is always the Uncertainty Principle for we mere mortals.

    Didn't accuse you either. You accused yourself and made it clear that you have a problem with Barack Obama's black skin. I just pointed it out.

    Facts are absolute.

    We draw conclusions from facts.

    We can classify facts as important or of lesser importance depending upon the conclusions we draw from facts.

    We can make faulty conclusions from facts.

    Good Book: Thomas Kuhn’s The Structure of Scientific Revolutions.

    A search will yield a few outlines that may be beneficial
