What is the “truth”?

I do not care whether you believe in Creationism or not, or what your definition of G-d is; if you despise such posts, ignore or block me.

What is the “truth”?

At one point I thought I had the "truth". Now I see there is no absolute truth. There is however personal or objective truth.

@Æ. Not really, just at one point I was very religious and now I don't know. I've just been reading a book on death and it has some interesting things which at one point I would not even consider listening to.

@Martha Well, the caption explains that this is not really about religion. This author has a interwoven context.

@Æ. Didn't intend to make it religious. Just pointing out that some believe truth is found in God while others find truth in more abstract things. In the end no one really has it.

@Martha I think to this author, he sees G-d not as a G-d, just as the entity of truth, or of all which exists. Some philosophers think that We are G-d from within, from the stars. The definition of -G-d is so vague in this context which I find mesmerising. (We are dancing to the same song but just from different angles) 🙃.

Truth is per definition "absolute", however, "knowledge" is not.

I guess truth is what the Tao Te Ching is pointing at.

Silly questions. Why are you on philosophy if you cannot understand context? Look up the author and read the caption. I do not care whether this post bothers your belief or not. Go elsewhere!

So are we talking about what truth is or god? Pick one.

You seem to be utterly lost. Research the Russian author. And perhaps you should do more inferenced reading; not going to spoon-feed you basic comprehension. Stay lost.

@Æ. I read all of it and your profile, and my question stands. Now I need you to give yourself a facepalm from me too. I also love your unearned sense of superiority. Adorable, child.

@Kyle No need to read my profile 🤦🏻‍♂️. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE AUTHOR OF THE QUOTE, not me. The guy is a famous novelist/philosopher. Again, I am not your nursery teacher to answer stupid questions. (If you did not get the memo already, in his philosophy it is synchronous, read more!)
