  1. Absolute truth-from a scientific and practical point of view – is absolutely complete and accurate Knowledge. So far, science has no reason to doubt the existence of such an absolute truth.

    Justification – the amount of all Scientific Knowledge-is systematically increased and refined, fundamental obstacles have not yet been found, this gives reason to believe that Scientific Knowledge tends to Absolute Truth.

  2. It all depends on the interpretation of the concept of “truth”. If we proceed from the correspondent theory of truth in its modern interpretation, where truth is absolutely reliable knowledge about reality, then truth is always and only absolute. The truth is 100% reliable knowledge. If the knowledge is unreliable by at least 0.001%, then this is a lie. In this approach, the term “absolute truth” is a tautology.

  3. Is the phrase “there is no absolute truth” an absolute truth?, runs into the problem – – – whether it may or may NOT be possible to specify the type of substance of the concept “Absolute Truth”? And if the substantiation of the concept of “Absolute Truth “is assumed to be in the Very Mind of the Deity, which is absolutely true in all worlds, then” Absolute Truth ” still exists as the nature of the Deity's existence. And this conclusion is Platonism, in the sense that it was Plato who referred the Reason of the Deity to the Highest Law of all things in general, which does not eliminate the Freedom of the Will, because in the Image and Likeness of the Deity and man has Reason as his Law and Law in general. In all other cases, it is not possible to recognize the existence of “Absolute Truth”.

  4. This phrase, of course, is not an absolute truth. If only because it must correspond to the statement contained in itself.

    There really is no absolute truth – even in this statement. The key is that without specifics, such statements are abstract, which means that they are neither true nor false in themselves – and it's just a matter of the context in which they are located.

    That is, in one sense absolute truth exists, and in another it does not. And both statements-if the relation in which the problem is considered is not specified-are true in themselves.

    Here's a very blunt but accurate comparison: is your desk to the left or right of the door? Depending on where your face is facing, in some cases both may be true at the same time. It is really on the left when viewed from one side, and really on the right when viewed from the other. Both statements are true.

  5. No, the phrase formulated above is not absolutely true, but this does not mean that the epistemological aspect of the main question of philosophy does not have a satisfactory solution.

  6. ABSOLUTE TRUTH – absolutely complete and accurate information/knowledge about everything – exists (this is a scientific axiom/hypothesis).

    Scientific knowledge-grows in volume and accuracy – and approaches the absolute truth (this is a scientific axiom / hypothesis).

  7. What is TRUTH? The truth is what you believe. Conceptual Gnostic philosophy cannot be logically refuted, so it is ABSOLUTELY TRUE.

  8. The answer is no. Simple truths: zero – “absolute” and infinity – “chaos”have not been canceled. Can't argue with math, or do you want to argue?. And we are where in between.

  9. This is nonsense!
    Absolute truths exist. And not alone. For example, light photon, electron and positron, space and time. In other words, they are primary entities created out of “nothing”. But they are beyond man's control for the simple reason that man cannot ” create out of nothing.” Only God is able to divide “nothing” in two without a trace.

  10. Here a lot of things were written by experts on the issue. But don't listen to any advice, including this one! What I have just written is the same logical technique that you used in the question. Your broad, generalizing judgment is called into question. This is to drive the judgment into a logical dead end. It is the ability to do THIS that speaks volumes about the relativity of everything. Here is a medieval riddle: “God can do anything, He is omnipotent. But can God create a stone that He himself can't lift?” The monk-scientists struggled for centuries, but found themselves at a dead end: If God can't create such a stone, then He is not omnipotent, and if He can. and then he will not be able to lift it – again, he is not omnipotent! Means. the problem condition was incorrect and there is no such super-being of the world that can do everything? There is no God?! But the answer is different. Our logic and all concepts are phenomena of our relative world. Only God is absolute, he is above this world. because I created it. Our laws do not apply to him – he created them, and a creature cannot be higher than its creator . One old homeless man at the Krasnodar railway station put the philosophers of the past to shame by answering this riddle like this: “The Lord, he can do anything. If he wants to create such a stone , he will create it. And then he wants to raise it – and he will raise it!” The serious answer to your question is that there are NO absolute truths in this world because of the relativity and interdependence of everything. But there is a reality where our logic is dust, and it cannot be measured and studied by our earthly relative norms, our reason, just as it is impossible to study the cosmos through a microscope… Only the world ABOVE, the world of the invisible heavens is absolute (a parallel higher reality, where Absolute Truth rules – the Creator of everything incomprehensible to our senses and mind: three-dimensional and multidimensional worlds, visible and invisible, laws and forces, time and energy in their diversity. He does not need candles, offerings, rituals, sacrifices, but only the ultimate sacrifice – our love.

  11. Hello.

    I think this is a false but not paradoxical proposition. Of course, we must first make a reservation about what we mean by absolute truth.

    If we are talking about a proposition that is true “in any frame of reference”, then, I think, it occurs: the world exists, we exist. Well, here, of course, you can talk about different modes of existence, but still we are, otherwise, how could we think?

    This phrase is similar to the phrase “all Cretans are liars”, said by one Cretan. It may well be false, but its truth leads to a paradox. Therefore, I think that it is false, which means that there is no paradox.

    In other words, here we can talk about the second-order truth – the truth is not about things, but about the first-order truth… But I think life examples show that the phrase is still false.

    For believers, God is the Guarantor of truth. He even called Himself the Truth. Therefore, the truth exists.

  12. The absolute truth described by Plato. The fact of the matter is that any object that appears in your head is absolutely true for it. The consequence of this is that your consciousness does not perceive negation, namely the particle “NOT”. 2 example, everything that you do not imagine, your subconscious mind will always take at face value.

  13. The phrase “oiled butter” or “salted salt” is absolutely true and for whom? For butter-about butter, about salt for salt.
    If you write a phrase…then it applies by analogy to a person. Is any human phrase true? No. Because man is a finite being and therefore limited. And absolute truth is absolute because it has no boundaries or limitations. But the phrase about this belongs to a person, so the phrase is finite and limited to a person. And from this it follows: true is either a phrase or absolute truth. And both are nonsense.

  14. And what is absolute? It's a word that means something that we think of as such. Something unattainable like a horizon…And what is truth? The same word…
    The absolute truth is there! And God has it. And everything human is just an echo of it…we call it the word Truth. Everything human is relative. Therefore, your question is nonsense.

  15. From the category of “Never say never”. The phrase “Absolute truth does not exist” is self-contradictory, because following its logic, it is not itself the truth and, accordingly, the absolute truth exists. And if the absolute truth exists, then this phrase is false.

  16. No. Since logically being absolute true, it itself becomes not true, which already makes it not absolute. And so on in a circle, paradoxes, they are like this.
