The idea of fumbling a truth brings us to; is a truth relative or absolute? In our western culture especially, many people have argued there is no such thing as absolute truth. Is there such a thing as absolute truth? My answer is yes there is. For example, 2+2=4 is an absolute mathematical truth. The only way it cannot be perceived as absolute truth, is through a contrived construct of some sort or that each element is not defined and agreed upon.
Additionally, to argue with certainty that there is no such thing as absolute truth is to make an absolute truth claim, and therefore the claim is itself, self-refuting. We can only conclude that absolute truth does exist. (Examples of opinion-viewpoint-based truth, or relative truth are included below in our discussion of religious truths.)
What Other Minds Thought About Doubt and Truth
–George Bernard Shaw
–François de La Rochefoucauld
How many Gods are there?But it turns out that the question is not so simple. We have to define exactly what a 'god' is. We'll use this definition:
A 'god' is a living entity of some sort with a personality, who has the power to create material out of nothing, and to influence natural processes by power of its mind only.So with that definition in hand, we could ask a group of people ''How many 'gods' are there in the Universe?''
These are probably the answers you will get:
I will then argue that this qualification has happened because of the our desire to 'know the unfathomable', therefore we have 'split up' God into personality traits and attributes. This is very apparent in Hinduism. This is our finite mind's way of managing and trying to conquer doubt.
