What is necessary to prove whether or not absolute truth exists?


This is a hotly contested topic of debate for many, and has been for centuries. Can you think of anything that would help shed light on this subject? Does absolute truth exist? Or if you prefer to answer this one, "does truth exist?" What are some ways this can be tested? Perhaps it isn't as hard as some make it out to be? Curious your thoughts on it, because its an idea that seems to matter, and some are so set in their belief one way or the other.

    people obviously have differing views. but aren’t some correct and some wrong? if the earth really is square, then we were wrong about its roundness. our thinking never changed the shape.

    You could try again or post in parts perhaps? Would love to see your answer too. There is option to do a hub too as a response for lengthier answers.

    Your position doesn't take into account universal distortions. For instance, many believe that "1+1=2" is an irrefutable knowledge, but in a room full of mirrors, any two objects will appear to be at least 4 or more; a truth to those unaware.

    On the contrary, my definition illustrates the impossibility of "knowing" by clearly showing that we can only know the uncertainty of knowing.
