If one denies the existence of absolute truth, one must accept the premise [absence of absolute truth] as something less than absolute. In my mind, it is no coincidence that this philosophical axiom, is a solvent which dissolves itself.

Therefore, it can be thought of as irrational to pursue absolute truth, scince if it exists, who can proclaim to know it.

I summarily reject this.

Evidence of our modern cultures' tacit acceptence of this premise [how do you critisize them for not thinking deep enough to be able to articulate it?] is the moral depravity of the arts [dung and pornographic clippings surrounding the Virgin Mary for ex.], rap music, obsession with sex or what ever feels good, drugs, satanic worship [if you doubt the existence of the super-natural--do a little research on this], ammorality [no morals--we gave up the ability to define it, remember] etc, etc.

We have abandoned the reason to reason. Truth has become irrelevant, it is cloaked in whatever rationalization our minds can muster.

If the deists are right, and God wound-up the clock and went golfing, He is indeed the author of confusion.

However, if absolute truth exists, it MUST BE God Himself.
