I have no argument with you at all. What you are saying is very simple: under your definition of "truth" I should use the word "opinion" to describe my feelings on any issue. In that vein, I know no truths what so ever! Everything I base my life on is "opinion". I have more confidence in some of my opinions than I have in others (that is other opinions, not opinions of others) but I am aware of no truths what so ever.

As I said, way in the beginning of this, if one accepts the ordinary definition of truth, the word serves no purpose.

From now on, in order to avoid argument, I will use the phrase "well thought out opinion" instead of the word "truth". (I takes more letters to avoid stepping on a worthless concept, but ok!)
