Or maybe the answer didn't suit you. But it's still the same, I don’t have a monopoly on truth. You have yours and I have mine. But when it comes to proving it, I need not because I didn’t assert there’s a God and some universal truth about him.You are shifting the conversation, which was neither about religion, nor the absence or existence of God. It was about a statement you made regarding truth. You said:
"There is no absolute truth."
Is that statement an absolute truth?
You asked me to re-read the earlier posts which I did. DA was ranting about the sacred and ultimate ‘truth’, and if you disregard that ‘truth’ it’s a recipe for degeneration (meaning yours truly), and the usual condemnations found in his daily sermons... I presume by scared 'truth' he means Christ and his message… So I merely pointed out that truth is relative. It’s his truth but it means nothing to me, nor does it effect my life now or when I'm dead and buried. If I don't subscribe to his truth or the christian message, I don't expect to degenerate. Far from it, I'd say I'm doing rather well without basing my life around an ancient man or book. But then again, who's to say? Maybe I am a degenerate after all. The truth is in the eye of the beholder.
