Is there such a thing as objective truth? In this case, I define the existence of objective truth as a prerequisite to being able to characterize ‘x’ as ‘something that is so,’ or ‘something that is not so.’
Recently, in discussion, I stated that objective truth did not exist. Disregarding the prerequisite of objective truth to make that statement (and hope it be…well, true) please consider the ramifications of a world without objective truth.
Hm. Potentially scary place. Nobody would be able to tell anything!
Objective truth is a concept.
Things which people might consider impossible to define as objectively ‘true’ or ‘false’ are generally abstract…and themselves ill-defined. Examples: emotional states, existential angst, etc.
Objective truth’s existence is irrelevant in situations where the thing you wish to determine is true or false is, in fact ill-defined. Objective truth may – in fact, probably does – exist, but it sure as hell doesn’t apply to things which aren’t completely defined.
