Truth (General): n. a subset(s) which existed with a large number of logical and accurate correspondences or has a relatively large probability of existing in the future and will have a large number of logical accurate correspondences.(scientific truth had a large number of accurate and logical correspondences in the past and will probably continue to have a large number of accurate correspondences in the future and is a standard of truth which future general truth should also have) The greater the number and accuracy of the logical correspondence will be the more true it will be!!!!!!
Truth (Judicial) (Jtruth): n. a relevant fact(s) and/or concept(s) which may be used to prove beyond a reasonable doubt the (nondeceptive and/or nonfraudulent) and/or honest nature of something through evidence and/or testimony by hopefully (non deceptive and/or nonfraudulent) and/or honest people and it may include scientific truth or testimony by hopefully (nondeceptive and/or nonfraudulent) and/or honest specialists in their field. Scientific truth may therefore be a subset of judicial truth during a trial.
Truth (Scientific) (Struth): n. a scientifically proven subset(s) proven by using the scientific method
We all intuitively feel that there are truths, untruths, and partial truths in the real world. The truths of yesterday are no longer true today so it seems that truth is a relative term or that it can change. Many feel that the opposite of truth is a lie. This black or white appraisal of reality is frequently wrong. There are partial truths or statistical truths and they are in fact partial lies and can be called deceptions instead.
What then is it that differentiates my truth from your truth when your truth on a topic is different than mine? The answer is which description or communication about reality is more accurate. If your description is the more accurate one then you have more truth in your statement than I do.
What makes an object sink or float in water? Historically humans explained that God or nature caused an object to sink or swim in water but today most agree that the truth is that objects denser than water will sink and objects less dense than water will float. Not only is the scientific mathematical explanation more accurate but it also has predictive power and can predict which object will sink or float based on an analysis of its physical properties.
Many still believe in myths and deceptions, many of which are religious and cult beliefs, which are very inaccurate ways of making judgments about humans and the universe which we are living in and many modern humans believe that these myths are untrue or are such inaccurate statements that they should be considered to be untrue or lies.
Thus the battle to destroy old truths and replace them with new truths is a constant battle going on. Unfortunately in human affairs which include human emotions, actions, and beliefs a very accurate description of what is going on is not always realistically possible because truths about human behavior are relative to the culture which they live in. They are statistical probabilities and not accurate mathematical one to one correspondences which can make for accurate predictions about human behavior.
What causes anger, fear, laughter, love, and hate in humans depends on what they believe in and how they impulsively behave in their lives and the same circumstances and stimuli may result in a different behavior based upon whom you are talking about.
Accurately describing the difference between a sociopath and a law abiding citizen is not possible because the descriptions use inaccurate badly defined words. In reality there are degrees of sociopathism and degrees of law abidingness which means that law abiding humans sometimes behave like sociopaths and sociopaths sometimes behave like law abiding citizens.
Name calling or stereotyping a human by calling them stupid, crazy, smart, or unreliable may not be totally true because that human may do some stupid, crazy, smart, or unreliable things but when analyzed as a whole that human may indeed not be doing very many stupid, crazy, and unreliable things in his or her life. If you are quick to judge humans then you can very frequently make inaccurate untruthful judgments about them.
If a human says they did something and you have proof that they didn’t then you can accuse them of lying or being untruthful and not feeling bad about the accusation.The greatest certainty in your human judgments is if a human intentionally lies to you. If they intentionally lie then they are not to be trusted and you should keep your relationship with them at a distance.
However,the world is filled with lies and deceptions which humans believe to be the truth so before you call someone a liar start out by saying that you think it is an inaccurate description of reality instead. You may still not convince someone that they believe a lie but at least they won’t get as personally offended as they would if you called them an intentional liar to their face. They are in fact unintentionally lying based on your standards of truth.
Are there any moral truths or is it just situation ethics where almost any behavior is tolerated? Statistically most humans don’t like liars, don’t like to be stolen from, and disapprove of adultery. These are statistical facts or realities which can be considered to be the truth about 99% of the time. Human moral behavior is in fact a discussion of statistical truths which have some minor exceptions which are not important enough to seriously affect the truth of the general moral statement.
After a lifetime of study and research I have created my own statistical secular moral code which is the truth close to 99% of the time. It is a statistical truth and is except in emergency situations- don’t destroy biodiversity, don’t lie, don’t be inefficient, don’t steal, don’t commit adultery if married, and don’t murder.
Impressionable young minds in elementary school should be taught this close to absolute moral code so that their behavior is guided impulsively with the right decisions in daily actions. When they become adults they will learn of the necessary exceptions to these seemingly absolute principles but these realistic exceptions should not corrupt their basically sound morality.
If you believe in the overall truth of this secular moral code then you will have honest, sincere, and trustworthy relationships with humans in your life and you will be respected and admired by them.
You will have purpose in your life because you will contribute to the preservation of wildlife and try to make your life more efficient by not wasting so much time, energy, and money on trivial pursuits in life but you will be able to focus on the things in life which give you the most pleasure or happiness in the short and long duration.
If you don’t lie and are not adulterous then your spouse and offspring if you decide to have any will trust you and you will increase the probability that your married life will be a successful one.
If the world begins to teach this secular moral code then nations can live together peacefully and avoid the collapse of civilization in the future due to the conservation of biodiversity which will be a safety net when the pollution of the domestic food supply begins to cause too much death and disease in the population.
There is rigorous accurate scientific truth and human moral behavior statistical truth which can and should be changed in the near future for the benefit of all the citizens of the world. We all have our personal notions of what the truth is and you should try to spread those concepts of truth to others because in the process of doing so you may find new truths which you can incorporate into your own updated personal beliefs.
I have defined love with an accurate definition which is better than the current definition of love which is very inaccurate but has some truth in it none the less. My definition of love is more true than yours or the worlds definition and understanding of love. More accurate definitions will create greater truth in this world and a more accurately defined language is what is desperately needed. SCIENTIFIC THESAURUS is my evergreen truth book which contains about 6000 more truthful definitions than standard dictionaries.
If you liked this evergreen truth blog then read more of them and one or more of my evergreen truth books, especially COMMON SENSE, rays of truth in a human world filled with myths and deceptions.
