At this point, most of us are probably nodding our heads sagely and feeling a little spark of understanding and love for those whose opinions we disagree with, no matter how vociferously.That is good. It may bring about more understanding, and open people’s minds to alternate opinions. It brings a peaceful solution to conflicts, no matter how miniscule or gargantuan the schism is.But is it correct?
Truth does not care about feelings. Truth does not care about perspectives.Truth just is.How would we know what the truth in the first pic really is? Do the research. Without research there is only opinion. Find out who drew the number and ask them had they drawn a 6 or a 9. And before the oft-repeated ‘there are three truths – his; hers and the real truth’ is uttered, maybe we should just accept that whilst there are various perspectives, there is only one truth, the truth.
Brilliant Blog. So, I see you drew it as a nine, but from where I am standing, it looks like a six. Let's agree to disagree. Regarding Reseach though Molly, things that were Truths and without a doubt have know been shown to be flawed [referring to the world being flat, Fat is bad for the heart, low Carb is best [in Medical Journal during the 80s and up to recently.Also Margarine is far more healthy than Butter, now we know the Tryglicerides are carciogenic
69 is my star sign apart from that I don't do my sixes like that nor my nines so I will say they're both wrong and I'm right.
Thanks GGWe must accept that theories are not facts. One the research was done, sailing around the world, that put paid to the theory that the world was flat.As for margarine or other food items, once there is profit to be made from a claim, then it must be taken with a pinch of salt until we are satisfied that it is correct.
Hi Molly, Most of us would only look at the truth from our own perspective, If we bothered to look at things from both sides we wouldnt really know the truth, perhaps looking at the overall picture and making our mind up based on facts will deliver the truth.For GG, Sod butter and Margarine, here we only use olive oil but if I were to choose its butter, however my little town is butterless and margarine is sold in tiny quantities....and that's the truth.
Merc, how did you get a 69 as your star sign, and I got a boring Taurus?
I will say they're both wrong and I'm right. Mercedes. Especially when you wake up to the fact that life is nothing but the illusion of our minds.
Hi Map, few of us look further than our own perspectives. The truth can be uncomfortable if it doesn't align with our personal beliefs.
That was supposed to be in italics. .
Molly I'm still yet to use it but hey there's always tomorrow Keepers my mum should of called me illusions
Oooh Oooh, I was just about to go in all guns blazing when I saw the second part of your blog as you say there is only one truth, just that sometimes the "research" can come from a biased source giving the illusion of a second truth
Merc, hopefully there will be lots of tomorrows.
Z, I'm glad I stopped you in your tracks ...I don't know if I could handle your blazing gun so early in the day
Molly /Z So much of medicine is biased research but when done by professor this and the Dean of that university and Hospital, and it ends up in a Medical Magazine [just giving an example of truth maybe not a great one ] but The Lancet, The Irish Medical Times ~ Antidepressants are not addictive, and factual evidence to enhance that statement, 'medical proof' when the Psychiatrists/docs got paid a handsome sum and we now know they are highly addictive.GPs Surgery ~ for 2 Decades, a Health Board pyramid that was totally incorrect and based on Fats being wrong when all along MAP and his Olive oil and me and my butter fetish, [on croissants or home made bread spelt bread] were good for us, in moderation. Truth is hard to get at times.
Z I love when you come in 'guns blazing' I know we are in for 1 line or 2 max of some very interesting comments.. .... and that dry wit.
Plenty of tomorrows or else I will be having a 69 with bloody slugs when I'm six feet under pushing up daisies.
Foot not feet
If i may ... i dont care for her truth,or the truth, there is just mine
