Having looked through old threads I noticed someone 'attacking', simply for lack of a better word, a post I made explaining what I viewed to be true. This person seemed to feel that I shouldn't be saying it because he didn't believe it or at least that I shouldn't be saying it as if it were true. This thread is not specifically about that, but inspired by that.
The 'truth' of a matter is based upon our own perspective. For example, Terrorism. Such a useful topic for so many things. For many people they would say it is true that the Terrorists are evil, or true that they are causing bad things to happen, but from a terrorist's point of view it would be true that the terrorists are causing GOOD things to happen and making the world a better place.
Another example is with religions. Taking Christianity and Satanism as an example, many Satanists would say it is true that their religion is the real religion and that their Satan is the only higher power whereas Christians would say that God is the only God and that Satanism isn't the "true religion", Christianity is. For one their is one truth, for the other the opposite is true, for members of either religion they would believe themselves to be right and thus speak the truth with what they say. Whether or not that truth is the truth of reality, they are not lying with their words so they must be telling the truth.
Confusing as this may be, it makes sense if you think about it the right way. Truth is perspective, facts are reality, that's what I'm trying to say here.
The start of religions, can any be proven? Is there an solid and indisputable PROOF that Christianity is a false religion? Is there any solid and indisputable proof that every other religion is false while Christianity is not? No for both. For some any of the three may be true of false, but none can actually be proven, so the truth or falseness is based on your own belief and nothing more. Your truth is based on what you believe.
For any who have had trouble understanding this, view it under these descriptions.
'The' Truth; a truth that can be proven as true.
Personal Truth; a truth that may or may not be provable, but is mostly based on your own beliefs/faith.
False; anything that is not true/provable.
Personal False; the lack of belief/faith in someone else's personal truth.
