Everything is True

No really.

His Popeness, Herr Ratzinger, is a firm believer in absolute truth. Like he’s absolutely right. And you’re wrong. Unless you agree that he’s absolutely right.

Heidegger says truth is the disclosure of the Being to Dasein, or, in less pompous language, truth is reality illuminated to someone who is really really smart. But actually not really, because he says there is truth and untruth in everything. What a stinker.

Camus is a man of action. The pornstar of truth-sayers. He says fuck all absolute truth. Ride that bad bitch and don’t give her a moment’s rest. He says absolute truth leads to intolerance, tyranny and really shitty art. Not to mention disturbing body tics like thrusting your arm out and yelling “Heil!” anytime you see a man with a well-groomed mustache. (Heidegger take note.)

Saint Augustine says truth isn’t something that comes from the mind like a dirty limerick. You can’t buy it on Ebay either. In fact, truth is transcendental and mysterious and highly personal. Like your secret fascination with Brazilian fart porn. Or kind of like that.

All kidding aside, here’s a great repository of smart people saying things about Truth: All the Truths about TRUTH.
