View Diary: WHY ARE DEMOCRATS AFRAID TO TELL THE TRUTH PART III (16 comments)

  •  The truth is unprovable. Only the false (0+ / 0-)

    can be demonstrated indubitably.  People peddling truth are disguising faith and belief.

    Yes, we are sworn to "tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth," but that's in the context of what has already happened and can be known.  And even then, our perception of experience may be flawed.  So, the strategy is to gather multiple perspectives and conclude that the truth lies where many perspectives intersect and agree. None of that is possible as regards the present and the future.

    Of course, none of that concerns a person who exists in the ineffable present and has no sense of the past and the future as distinct entities.
