there are as many "truths" in the world as there are people

No, this is completely false. The world does not care about various opinions of what the truth is. It is people which are subjective. The world in which we live is objective. It either is or it is not. Your false relativistic theory of truth is a danger to everybody, because denying climate science will not stop the damage fossil fuels are doing to the environment, nor will denying tobacco research stop you getting lung cancer. Do not confuse belief with truth.

your subjective experience is true

I think you are confusing the concept. Experience is not subjective. Experience is the result of an interaction between subjective (i.e. you) and objective (i.e. the world). If everybody in the world has the experience of learning to drive, then despite them all being different people with different opinions, the truth is still going to be that, as a result of experience, they can all drive.

I welcome some critical thought though. Anything but mindless downvoting.
