I’m sure you’ve seen the memes about how “what’s true for you, isn’t necessarily true for me.” Oddly enough, this seems to be a popular idea. Even, the more recent Star Wars’ films got into the idea by claiming, “Only the Sith deal in absolutes. ” I may be paraphrasing, that was the gist of the matter.
But that isn’t true. There are absolute truths. there’s the law of gravity, for one thing. Mathematics is considered a universal language for a good reason. 1 + 1 better equal two wherever you are, unless you are trying to explain procreation to your child.
If you take the idea of absolute truths away, you find that personal responsibility starts to fade away. Lawlessness begins to rule. Why? Simply because truth has become relative. Just because you see stealing as wrong, doesn’t mean that the mugger on the street does.
This is why confusion and ignorance is running rampant. Truth has been darkened by too many grey areas. Either gravity exists or it doesn’t. Absolute truth exists for if it doesn’t then humanity has no hope. There must be a standard to raise people with strong morals and wisdom.
