our truth

The truth. That 'other' truth is what I call lies.

It's disgusting how many people don't understand this. Truth is not subjective.

I've got a saying for people whenever something goes wrong and they try to shift bless or whatever.

There's your truth, my truth, and the truth. It's why your supposed to look at both sides of an issue before making your mind. Only listening to one side causes only a half truth.

Example of half truth: US has a lot of gun homicide

Same example but full truth: the numbers touted for US gun homicide include suicide. Removing suicides and justifiable killings (or castle doctrine) the US has a remarkably low gun homicide or murder rate. Now if you remove the cities with the most gang activity the US becomes one of the safest countries in the world.

Truth is objective, but people can twist that truth and they do.

you can ask 100 people what the color of something is and you will get many different answers, but you ask the wavelength of light radiating off that same thing and you can only get one answer.

phrasing and definitions are important, this is why language is critical.

Truth is 100% subjective when you are a retard or insane...also known as a "liberal"

but yea the referenced contextual application of "Truth" is misplaced and gay

Many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view.

Truth is a process of discovery.
