    We Need to Know the Difference

    "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

    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".

    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...

    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...

    Another Lesson

    I did not see this event, but read about it quite a few years ago.  It was in a book written by a physician celebrating the human spirit. It seems that a man's wife of 30 years had a stroke, and the left side of her face drooped heavily.  He was out of town at the time...

    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...

    FT"s Trinity

    For some reason, I keep coming back to the concept of "Relational Truth," possibly because there there is always the nagging sensation that it wasn't explained well enough. I didn't coin the term; read about it in college , but since have been able to find much written...

    They sure are. Especially ones that brim with self confidence and a desire to go after what they want. Women who are willing to try new things, explore, and say "Why not?".
