Truth is objective, but there are different truths, just like science is objective but sometimes there are different theories. When two or more theories exist, the one with the most evidence is believed until proven otherwise, and if two theories have "equal" amounts of evidence, then the simpler one is believed.

Not all evidence is scientific, some is philosophical, and some is personal, though the personal kind isn't very convincing to others, nor is it necessarily trustworthy.

My point is this: everyone has different ideas of what is true, but they wouldn't hold those ideas if they didn't truly believe them. No one believes something knowing it is false - that is impossible. They can, however, know that something is true and consciously deny it. Those that consciously deny the truth are hurting themselves in the long run, just like telling yourself "That 60 m fall won't kill me" or "All people are good, so I won't get robbed walking through this bad neighborhood flashing my money around" will get you hurt.

Truth is only something that can be experienced, it can not be taught or understood intellectually. No one can give you truth, they can only point you in the general direction and then you've got to do the work yourself to realize it within yourself. Knowledge is different at different stages of consciousness. Raising your state of consciousness can completely transform the way you experience reality. This is why religions end up so fucked up and dogmatic, because the followers lose the techniques to raise their awareness and completely misunderstand the original teachers because they're not even close to their level. The difference between the average persons understanding of life and that of the saints and spiritual masters that have come throughout time is astronomical. They'll all tell you that you can never prove to someone else that God exists, just like you can't ever prove that God doesn't exist. What many term to be God can only be experienced within yourself through your own efforts.

I've experienced countless magical things that people would consider fiction. Most people will never experience such things because they doubt there existence and are thus veiled from them. It takes hundreds of life times to evolve ones consciousness to the point of being open such things, but evolution is a law of nature so you'll all get it eventually. However, fortunately we do have the freedom to speed up such evolution. Just got to look in the right places, and ask the right questions, and then sit quietly in a space where the answers can come to you.

"The size of the lie is a definite factor in causing it to be believed,
for the vast masses of a nation are in the depths of their hearts more
easily deceived than they are consciously and intentionally bad. The
primitive simplicity of their minds renders them a more easy prey to a
big lie than a small one, for they themselves often tell little lies,
but would be ashamed to tell big lies."

quote from adolf hitler.

No matter how much truth you think is being told... history is written by the victors and most people will never know the whole truth.

To put it bluntly; most people can't handle the truth.

It is a normal human reaction and/or desire to run away from the truth - no matter how bad it is. They can't handle it. ^
I try to be as honest as I can with myself and others... Sneaking in a few white lies to cover up embarrassing incidents throughout my life...
I'm guilty as charged at that.

New Town is a false flag event. The New Town, Sandy Hook and all the other shootings in the past are stage events created by the government to convince Americans that guns are bad and to convinced them to give up their 2nd Amendment. The reason why they want to take your guns away is because they want to massacre us. If we don't have guns, then the tyrannical government that we have will murder us. That is their intent.

I can always handle the truth. Remember people, the truth will set you free.

Your credulousness is very shocking. You seem intelligent, yet you so readily believe something just because it fits into your anti-establishment agenda.

I bet you think this is true too, right?

After being lied to for so long I just don't believe in anything anymore. The truth is out their and I am in no hurry to find it. Now don't get me wrong I still listen to opinions. I have no problem being wrong or anything like that. I just don't care for the truth to fight with people over it.

Honestly, I couldn't give two shits about the 'truth' that the conspiracy theorists are spurting out in this thread, because it's all bullcrap.


The videos that you illuminati believers and government haters praise never cease to make me laugh, because they're not at all legitimate.

But seriously, accepting the truth can be hard for some people.

This sounds like my legal studies class...

The truth is simply what really and honestly happened, with no made up bits, or exaggeration, no embellishing or removing parts, and no bias.

Believe those who are seeking the truth,
doubt those who find it.

Every great truth begins as blasphemies.

People only see what they are prepared to see~
