Vic, I thought you said there is no truth.

Gosh Vic, your opinions regarding truth seem to change quite often. It's almost like you jump to not believing in truth as an escape when caught in other lies. Is it hard living with that persona every day? Or, do you get used to it?

I never said truth doesn't exist, only that we as humans are incapable of knowing it. (Your belief in Adam's Apple notwithstanding. )

This post is consistent with that thinking once you realize that the fading light is a metaphor for death.

Yes, of course.

It must be wonderfully convenient to be able to alter definitions according to your own whims. [You realize that your credibility goes out the window, right? Or, should I say - is a fading light.]

Interesting take.

Some people call it poetry or creativity, some simply
say it is open-mindedness. There are people who actually find virtue in being able to view a subject from more than one angle; in being able to make connection and "connexions" that lesser minds cannot fathom.

But you are probably right. If I were superhuman like you I would know that every word only has one meaning and that poetry is folly, and discussion is unnecessary after you've bitten the right apple.

What you are calling creative poetry, I am calling deceit. Where you find virtue in leading people down irrelevant rabbit holes, I find dishonesty. It's the 'lesser minds' that progressives prey on.

Sure. People have called lots of 'stories' deceit. Moby ****? completely made up. The Great Gatsby? Fake, Fake , Fake!

I even know some people that have the audacity to say the bible itself is fake news. WTH Bud? Can you believe those fools?

If you want to continue I will.

If you can provide one clear argument for any absolute truth that is not definitional - I will repent and publicly apologize to you and all of Amirite.

If you cannot then you will stop trying to convince me that you know the truth about anything.

I do. And as Thinkerbell pointed out, it did not. You probably rotated past it.

Is that the way to respond to someone willing to spend some time to help you improve yourself?

You know, many people find that life is a lot more fun and easier and more fulfilling when they are consistent and honest with themselves and others.

I wish you luck with that, in your life.

Thanks Bud!

You know, many people find that life is a lot more fun and easier and more fulfilling when they are open minded and can see connections that other don't see. If they are willing to consider possibility and aren't so steadfast. Some people are so set-in-their-ways that even a teeny-tiny deviation sets them into a compete tizzy.

Here's a story I read a long time ago, princess.

And the prince was a dodo for marrying such a snowflake of a princess who got black and blue bruises from lying on a pea that was under twenty mattresses and twenty eider down beds.

In fact, she wasn't a princess at all.

She was a liberal student at Berkeley.

Bud and you are probably not liberal students at Berkeley. But you do bruise easily. One little pea of a contradiction and you two are like whiny little babies - "'oh Vic lied to us, he's so stupid, he should be more like us. Vic is like a pea under my mattress and I'll never sleep until I wheedle him out of my life."

Vic, I spend more time with you than any other liar in my life. All other liars are simply not in my life.

You spew your lies and deceit every day. If it bothers you - being called out and exposed - I'm cool with that.

I think your attempt to shame myself and Thinkerbell for exposing your deceit is hilarious.
