Do you believe or don't believe in absolutes?
Posted 6/16/16
Yes and why?
No and why?
What are your absolutes if you have one?
Now for people saying they don't believe in absolutes.

I don't think *most* things fall under absolutes. I've realized the paradox in saying that there are NO absolutes so the word "most" fits my feelings towards absolutes pretty well

It is absolutely false that science will come to know all facts that could be attributable to scientific investigation.

"One day, science will find out everything" ... false.

The truth lies in the absolute. Because the absolute truth is complex and cannot be easily comprehended by humans, it gives off a vibe of relativism and subjectivism.

Claims to absolute truths are based on an axiom that we are even capable of knowing or dictating our reality. It cannot be proven.

The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.

I believe in absolute zero and absolute hot. A temperature in which subatomic particles stop moving within matter and a temperature at which those particles are moving so fast that the atoms they make up and no longer be held together.

I realize this is kind of annoying, but fermions don't necessarily stop moving at zero temperature - for the same reason electrons fill up different orbitals in atoms. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fermi_energy
