"Hmmm... so in essence you are saying that the truth is subjected to an individuals view? But then what is the point of being abnle to discern right from wrong? I thought it was in order to find the truth..."
Morality doesnít seem to be to be governed by the truth, or pardoned from it. In fact, isnít morality more faceted than truth within the aspect of whatís accepted in individual awareness and application? Whatís right for me is wrong for you, yada yada, but we may agree on the real truth of the matter.
And the old, ďIf you donít have anything nice to say, donít say it (even if itís the truth.) Iíve never faired very well with that societal application of whatís right and good; in other words, Iím not a sales person or one to ask how something looks on someone unless they are prepared for the facts of the matter or an honest opinion. Most people arenít looking for that. They are looking for someone to validate what they think theyíre already right about, but I could be wrong, haha. And Iím not saying Iíd rip someone apart. I do have couth and tact, but even in the most frivolous of things such as: womenís shoes, Iíve had ladies ask me, ďDoes this shoe look too small?Ē Their foot could be popping out over the neck of the shoe like biscuit dough from a can, and they want me to say, ďNo, hon. Sexy! You are styling!Ē I narrow it down to minutes. How many minutes could she stand to look...that sexy...in that particular pair of shoes, which usually helps her decide. How do I know theyíre not...recreational? In the sense that they wonít stay on very long anyway?
good gosh, itís early this morning and Iím sorry for lettiní my ďbefore the pot of coffeeĒ mind have at it. Just so yall know: Iím so thankful for this forum. It keeps me wee little brain cells jumpiní. Iíve got a finite math test today, and Iíll be honest. I totally (the sum of all numbers) suck at math. No pity parties though! Iím gonna pass if itís the last math class I ever take.
one mo thang:
If we were to entertain the thought that weíre all mostly wrong about everything, the truth might get better press, but the importance of the truth seems to be overshadowed by making sure everyone knows how right one is and how wrong all others have always been.
