    Truth and Facts

    At sea level water boils at 212 degrees F.  I believe this is a fact that represents an observation based upon some arbitrary scale. I'm sure that with careful census someone can quote the percentage of children that got to bed hungry.  Let us say that it is 10% for...

    FT"s Trinity

    "Archaeology is the search for fact... not truth. If it's truth you're looking for, Dr. Tyree's philosophy class is right down the hall." ~ George Lucas, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, 1989

    Another Lesson

    Shroedinger's Cat

    Considering all things exist in all possible states simultaneously, and only choose a state when observed, or better yet, the observer actually effects the state of the particle being observed, there is really no such thing as "truth".

    The Lesson

    I was leaning on the counter drinking coffee, talking to the convenience store clerk, when two beautiful little girls, obviously sisters, walked in. The younger one, looking to be about 5 or 6 gave me a heart melting sweet smile as she walked by.  The older one appearing to...

    Yeah

    Truth can have a variety of meanings, from the state of being the case, being in accord with a particular fact or reality, being in accord with the body of real things, events, actuality, or fidelity to an original or to a standard. In archaic usage it could be fidelity...

    Lady In Waiting

      This true story is nothing new.  It is my guess that the same scene is played out hundreds of times on a daily basis, and I have no doubt that many of you have either witnessed or actually experience some variation of this scene.  It is just another chapter in...
