There IS only one truth. No, not one truth for everybody, I mean, One truth. It's entirely impossible for it to be any other way, and even if you don't believe in God you still have to agree with this logic or you don't understand anything. amirite?
Who's to say their aren't multiple truths intertwined, correlating off of one another? It's not all just black and white.. if that makes sense.
so you're saying a christian god can be the only god like the christians think, and another 6 gods can also be the ONLY gods like some other religion thinks?
Dammit, this post made me lose the Game.
I think the point that the OP is trying to make is that at least some questions of religion/philosophy/spirituality/whatever must have a single answer. Take the question of the existence of God. While we will probably never know the answer, we must agree that there is an answer. There isn't really a midpoint between existing and not existing.
Of course if I'm wrong, OP, and you meant something else, feel free to correct me.
you're right :)
Yeah, there is only one truth, we just don't know which one it is:p
i does not understand
I love the disscusion that arose from this, it's so interesting to see what people think about it :D
Yes. Somehow, god makes sense.
"I will put the knowlege of good and evil right here. In this garden. With two curious creations of mine, and hope they don't touch it. "
he knew they would. he created us anyway because he loves us so much.
He always knew they'd touch it. He gave us free will and a choice, but He always knows your answer.
Ahem Sorry, it sounds exactly like someone saying, "What we believe is right, whatever YOU believe is wrong". And who's to say that there is not multiple ways that everything on earth was made possible? (reiterating what Anonymous said) I don't believe that there is only ONE truth. But many others.
that is like saying "well i believe that 2 plus 2 is four, and you believe two plus two is five. That is okay though you can think about it multiple ways, there are more than one truths." That makes no sense. There is only one truth to something. It isn't a matter of who is right and wrong, they are simply saying that there is only one way for the universe to work.
That argument isn't valid, because the example you gave doesn't fit the point we are trying to make here. In math, there is only one way (for the most part) and only one answer. Who's to say that creation of the earth didn't have many different factors to being created?
I didn't say it can't have many different factors in its creation. I'm saying that, like what the poster of this was saying, whatever the factors are, they apply to everyone. Maybe God created earth. Maybe what the scientists think is correct. MAYBE a magic fairy came and created a world ruled by bunnies but they didn't like it so they told God to just do whatever he wanted with evolution. Whatever it is, it is the same for you and me. I can't believe everything was solely created by Santa Clause and you believe everything was solely created by the tooth fairy and have us both be right. (I don't really believe these things they are just ways to make things simpler)
You are right that we can't both be right, but we can be partly right. Maybe two different theories can be put together to create the truth. Some parts of one might be correct and some parts of another. No one knows and all I'm saying is that it's possible that every theory out there plays a part in what the real truth is. We can both believe different things and still be partly right.
i agree. that however is not what you were saying before, which was that there are more than one truths and multiple ways one thing was made.
In the post before, i meant that there is only one truth, but many different theories can be put together to create that one truth.
