Absolute Truth, with a big “T”. What does that phrase stir up in you?
I’ve been thinking about my epistemological paradigm, or the way in which I construct my moral/philosophical/spiritual “framework”, lately…as many of you undoubtedly know. In this line of posts, there is The Mighty Crash and Our Impending Doom.
I left off Our Impending Doom by providing my current musings on the question, “Is there still a way to hold a few core beliefs without the rest of them being dependent on those at the core?”. I promised further explanation in the next post, but have slipped in a few between here and there…oh well, we’ve got to come up for air sometime eh?
Before I go into an explanation of the paradigm I’m currently test driving, let me get back to the problem–or depending on how you may see it–the solution at hand.
Does absolute Truth exist? If so, what makes it “absolute”? More importantly (to me), if absolute Truth does exist, can we possibly know it absolutely?
In your experience, what does a life believing in and built upon absolute Truths look like? Likewise, what does a life lived by philosophical relativism consist of?
