Truth Scrapbook

/ Thinking Tools / Truth /

Here it is 2016 10 12 and I’m only just launching a Truth Scrapbook: or I’ve had more than one for decades and forgot where I put them. Fact is, they are and always have been everywhere: truth is on of my primary subjects.

It’s come up especially now that the presidential election and Donald Trump’s participation make “truth” and easy word to bandy around:
Right now Trump is loosing face big time for saying something true in the hearing of a live mic. He said that a “star” could get away with almost anything: a star could grab a woman by the pussy and get away with it. True. Who doubts it.

Ah, there may be no doubters, but we are a society with a conspicuous paucity of truth tellers.

Liars shouldn’t waste our time with elections.

Truth & Knowing
2017 01 15 Don’t confuse truth and knowing. We may not be capable of knowing the truth about this that or anything, but the truth will still be true no matter what we know. No? By definition.
Similarly it doesn’t matter what the population believes if the belief is (beliefs are) false.
If doesn’t matter if the population swears certainty that God forgives them for their sins, that Jesus had paid their debt, if God doesn’t forgive anyone an inch no matter what Jesus has or hasn’t paid.

That didn’t come out right, first jot, but I’ll work on it.

Seems to me that some modicum of honesty is requisite to intelligence. If we look in the mirror and see not kleptocrats but Christians, we’re still in the same old trouble.
