Universal fluctuating 'truths' relevant to a metaphysical phenomenon of growth, including us perhaps, to some degree is not an unworthy consideration
This may relate, in part, to non duality...........

Iv seen that this is a common belief among atheists. Do you have any sort of moral dilemma with "changing truth"? Isnt a constant unchanging truth the very basis of mathematics and why we can trust good math?

Did you miss this or did you not understand it?

I thought we were only to post according to the topic of the particular thread? This is another topic Wink

That wasn't ignored, it was addressed earlier. I absolutely disagreed and pointed out you had that somewhat backward according to the implications of that study... and you responded with no source to back you... I had 5 sources backing me Wink ...now back to the topic of THIS thread... No universal absolute truth? ... or yes? Smile

Not really. Sorry about that. However, this thread reminds me strongly of dear old diddo, and I think the question is basically meaningless and unanswerable. I think this thread will go round and round and leave no-one any wiser than they were before. Like WitchSabrina, I am weary of these threads.

You don't know the point of this thread yet... it is a layer of evidence for one more thread to follow it... stick around Wink

Yeah, we are supposed to follow the rules, but if we have to do with an obvious troll, no one will care if I break them a little.

What you pointed out earlier was the exact opposite of what I told you. If you'd like, go back to that thread and give me an appropriate answer to what I specifically told you. What you said earlier is in no way an appropriate answer to what I pointed out.
