There have been some hubs and forums that attack the fringes of the topic of absolutism, usually in a religious vein. However, I think the topic is worth exploring, since there is so much dispute over it.
Can we "know" anything? Are there any facts or assertions that are completely indisputable? Is knowledge something static, or is it always evolving into something more (or less) accurate?
Please keep this discussion civil: no name calling, insults, or indefensible rants. If you have something to say, please say it in a reasonable context. Thanks.
My personal opinion is that nothing is outside the scope of being questioned - though some things could be considered somewhat pointless. Gravity, for example, could be disputed, I suppose - but unless you have a strongly supported, verifiable alternative, then there is little reason to question that gravity exists in the way we currently understand it.
I also think that knowledge tends to progress, on average, in a positive direction: one that comes closer to underlying "truth."
