    i believe you can know truth without challenging it

    i am alive, i know this, i wouldn't challenge that truth

    but for some truths, you probably would have to challenge it first, so it really boils down to the truth in mind

    Great question. I don't think you can know the absolute truth about anything if you do not challenge it somehow.

    However, we must balance the obsession to discover the truth of something with the humility in knowing that some truths are simply out of our reach in our present lifetime. At the same time, we must respect the opinions of others if we want to challenge some universally-held truth. Challenge and engage their minds in a rational discussion in pursuit of the truth, by all means.

    Essentially, it boils down to how much we feel the truth is worth to us or to society as a whole, and how much we want or are willing to risk finding out the truth.

    After college, I spent a year and a half in law school. I learned that there is the truth and the interpretation of the truth. Just as there is no right or wrong answer in the practice of law, it is all up to interpretation and how you relate your interpretation to others.

    Of course we have the statutory rules that can be broken (i.e malum prohibitum), which makes breakiing these rules wrong, but the offenses that are wrong within itself,  like rape and  murder (malum in se) are constantly challenged and beaten daily (O.J Simpson) on interpretations of the truth (evidenciary material).

    Some things are true within themselves, but challenging the truth has it's merits.

    Truth is somehow very silent. sometimes, we may need to challenge it to know. The coolest thing is truth is as white as snow yet difficult to identify easily.
