    I don't think there really is a 'truth' in this world, it's just what we want to believe or not.

    So is that what you just believe, or is at applying to everyone, as in an absolute truth?

    Certainty is a truth that's not absolute.

    Perception isn't truth, it is simply an opinion. There is also no such thing as an absolute truth. What could be the truth now could be different tomorrow.

    ex.
    Let's say that there was a person named Anna who is still alive this year, 2006.
    Is it true that Anna is alive? Yes it is true, Anna is indeed alive.
    Then she got into a car accident on 2007 and died.
    Let's then skip to 2008...
    Is it true that Anna, the same person in this example, is alive?

    So you see, truth changes, and therefore it is not absolute.

    Math is the theory of truth, but theory itself is not absolute. 1+1=2, that seems absolute, but if 2 is a nonexistent value, does 1+1 = 2?

    Changing my point, truth is not a topic that can have a final resolution made by mortals.

    I think, there is "truth" on one side and "lies" on the other side. Absolute truth? The only opposite of truth are lies! I think...

    Sorry for my bad English ^_^

    This kind of thing comes up a lot, especially amoung historians. They call it "historiography." Since throughout history, the best records were kept by the winning parties (history is written by the victor), it's the historians' job to sort through what actually happened and what is just propaganda.

    I think that the truth is absolute, but everyone has a different perception of it, which can lead to debate.

    For example, in any instance where something happens, that something really only happens a certain way. But everyone who was involved, witnessed that happening, or heard about it afterwards, will likely each have a different version of events to tell.

    Which is why gossip can be unreliable, since every time you hear it the story will be at least slightly different.

    Let's say that I walk into a store and buy a box of pocky. The person at the cash register, the people standing in line, and I all know that I did this. But, if there were someone who watched me pick up the pocky, but did not see me pay for it, who then saw me leave the store, they may think that I've stolen it.

    See? I actually bought the pocky, but not everyone would necessarily agree with that.

    Let's go here, for a minute. Is it true that Anna is alive? She was in 2006, but died in 2007. That truth is absolute. The answer to that question is the only thing that depends on time. What actually happened, when she lived and when she died, doesn't change.

    Truth is all about perception, and persception comes from your body and senses and your senses can be decieved so i think truth is very abstract and definetly not concrete and absolute.
