    Do we know anything?

    I know a lot. Whether it is ultimately true or not does not matter to me. As far as I can tell most of it is true now.

      I think our experiences ultimately determine what we know. Only through experiential learning can we determine truth. IMO

    Jesus said "I am the Way, the TRUTH, and the Life.  No man cometh unto the Father but by Me."

    "I think our experiences ultimately determine what we know. Only through experiential learning can we determine truth." Always been my philosophy. The trick is to make the appropriate experience for the time.

      Knol, this sounds like the agenda of a politician when talking about his targeted electorate!

      I am aware that some experiences, I have willingly sought. Some happened by chance and others were the result of manipulated circumstances.  Give me the kind of experiences that happen by chance, anyday.

    If you manipulate your experience, you just reinforce what ever it is that is already in mind. Might say there is a bit of a science to creating the kind of experience appropriate to one's level of understanding, but which is by chance.

      Yes, but what if someone else has manipulated your experience? Would you still agree that "the experience" was synonymous with whatever you already had in mind?

    "Yes, but what if someone else has manipulated your experience?" Usually this only happens if you are a paid agent working for someone. One of my techniques is called synchronicity, ask a question, go out into reality and an experience may happen. Sort of an open control.

    This is difficult to answer.  However, I'd say it is probably indefinable.

    Truth is.... very difficult to answer.  But I think truth is God and always truth wins.  It may take years to prove or for the truth to surface. 
    Truth you may feel it in your heart.  I don't know... what is truth anyways?  Nice question to ponder.
