All truths are relative. There is your truth & my truth.
From the truth of the colonists v/s the truth of the American Indian,
to the truth of scientific experiments v/s the relativity theory,
its all basis so many assumptions that the one thing we can be sure of is thats there's no sure thing here.
Any event, experience, place, person, or thing can be interpreted a myriad different ways.
The definition of truth for me would be that it or an honest expression of an experience or a belief, which at best can only be an interpretation.
So is the statement "All truths are relative" relative? And are you absolutely certain that the statement "there is no absolute truth" is true? Contrary beliefs are possible but are contrary truths possible?
