I trust I am not setting up a “straw man” to beat up on this thought on relativism and truth. Nevertheless, here’s a quick thought.

With relativism, truth is naïve. Truth is a matter of opinion and is relative to the individual and/or social norms. Something can be “true for me”, and have nothing to do with others—like you favorite color. For the relativist, truth with a capital “T” is dead. It would seem that relativists, at least some, have taken subjective truth (my favorite food is apple pie), and applied to everything, thus eliminating any objective sense.

First, it should be brought out that the relativists view of truth is self contradictory. To say that truth is relative, or to claim there is no truth--is an affirmation of truth. Relativists believe that their view of “truth” is actually true for everyone. Thus, they make an absolute statement of truth. I like the way Greg Koukl puts it, if it’s true, it’s false, and if it’s false, it’s false. But even if it’s true that there is no truth; then it’s also must be false, because that becomes a true statement, which nullifies it……………………………just a thought.

Whoa. I actually understood that! Interesting thought. I haven't really posted anything new. Not sure if I want to. Nobody reads it anyway. I get comments like this one above (jerry simpson) all the time.

So, how have you been? I'm okay. You know what stinks? (Before you answer, it's a rhetorical question.) I just got done with a paper and a presentation and now he gave us ANOTHER paper to do. OOyy. I need one of those BANG HEAD HERE posters. Well, guess I'll work on homework, or dinner, or the dishes, which one shall I do first? eeny meeny miny moe. Hmmm, I might be back later.
Until next time, have a nice day.
C ya!

I get “spammed” all the time. It’s irritating. Why can we just have a blog with some one trying to sell us something? I have been buried in homework also, so I feel your pain. I think I even got a gray hair this week. Depressing.
