Aurino,

If that is your beef, then I have no problem with it. The word 'true', I think, must be pragmatically defined (somehow), otherwise we are only fooling ourselves. At the same time, we must also avoid making ridiculous assertions such as there is no such thing as truth, etc. In my view, the compromise position is to accept certain things true, knowing that there is a certain degree of fallibility that comes with holding certain things as true. We can't do with out it, so we should also stop fooling ourselves as if we can.

Have a good weekend!

Warm regards, Harv
