Words... words.... words.

    The thought that we can never be sure of  the verity of anything nowadays, have unhinged quite a lot of people. We all  seem to be searching for the truth, in all manners of human action and reaction, but find that the uncovering of what is factual and actual, have become quite a  daunting chore  to say the least.

    When truth has become so  relative, the chance of finding someone who  use  words to express  exact  meaning and purpose is almost nil. Parsing words, splitting hairs, discombobulating has beome the rule of the day....nowhere is this the case more evident that  on HubPages.

    I don't know....   I don't parse words, split hairs, or discombobulate if I can at all help it; and I think there are still a lot of people who are similar.  I don't think "truth" is at all relative - just not necessarily evident in a lot of instances, and there's a big difference between "not evident" and "relative".  hmm

    Not sure who/what you have in mind when you mention "..evident..HubPages", but I think it can often be reasonably easy to detect honesty and/or facts, because neither has any "holes" in them.  BUT, no doubt about it - you can't believe everyone/everything you see on this site, any site, or in/on a lot of places offline, for that matter.  Asking why someone says something, asking where what s/he has said comes from, asking for clarification or explanation, or double-checking something in other sources will usually reveal whether there are "holes" in what someone presents on HubPages.  I can't say I find it very daunting.  (If you mean all the stewing and wheel-spinning that goes with people who post religious stuff, and that kind of "Truth" - well, that's a whole other thing, but I think that kind of searching has gone on since the beginning of time. )
