    No.. Not exactly sure what you're talking about but no. Truth can't be absolute.. What's true to us is different- it varies on the individual.

      How about something simple like did you make your bed this morning either yes or no will be the absolute truth.

    Knowing is absolute. It is a fact.When you know for sure.... It is binding. I can look at a lit match and wonder about its glow,but to touch it is to wonder no more. That is absolute knowledge.
    To know God is a personal experience,other than to look around you and behold his creativity.
    Because one can not see him,does not mean that he is not here or don't exist.
    He is like words of unseen spiritual existence.You can not see them but you can be affected by them in action and reaction of spirit.

    Absolute truth does exist. In "true" science, there are many scientific laws that illustrate there are some absolute truths.  As humans, we would not be able to function in a world filled with relative truth. In order to function and interact with each other, we need some portion of absolute truth.

    When everyone has their own truth, by logical extension, there is no truth, since truth in that mindset all depends on the person's perspective. In societies filled with relative truths, relationships and society quickly fragments.

    The absolute truth is things change.  Physically things are always changing somethings change faster and some slower, but change is always there.  For example humans all take a birth, all get older, and all die that is a process that is absolute. 

    There are other absolute truths i.e fire burns flesh. No one could are with that, all they would have to do is test it out and they will learn quickly. Physically there are absolute truths.  Another example is without air people will die.

    There is absolute truth in mathematics 1+1=2 as long as all agree on value for all the symbols used.
