"You're not at the point in your life where you question the definition in dictionaries. Where you are right now the dictionary appears to be the ultimate correct answer (or, maybe right underneath the authority of Leviticus and Deuteronomy)."

Umm... no. I always have question some definitions in the dictionary, I was just get an equal footing. After all it is hard to argue about what is fact or not if we don't agree to what a fact is. Prehaps we just don't understand each others deffinition.

To put it bluntly here is MY definition of fact:

Fact : An event, action, or bit of knowledge that can not be disputed by another current event, action, or bit of knowledge. If it is disputed by a current event, action, or bit of knowledge then it is no longer a fact.

Bit of knowledge: A piece of knowledge that has been determined to be true even if there still remains unknown properities to that truth.

I hope this helps.

Have a happy day- Aaron
