What is Truth?

What is truth? How do we determine truth? A definition of true is “in accordance with fact or reality,” while the definition of truth can be “a fact or belief that is accepted as true.” In recent years, there has been an incredible amount of anxiety over what is fact and what is fake; what is true and what is a lie. In my mind’s eye, I do not always see a belief that is accepted as true as factRead more

One-Liner Wednesday: Right!

From Abandoned Shopping Carts: Personal and Spiritual Responsibility by William Bezanson: “The reason I believe that women are always right has to do with the different ways that men and women make decisions.
