The Only Truth Existing We are then faced with a quite simple alternative Either we deny that there is here anything that can be called truth - a choice that would make us deny what we experience most profoundly as our own being or we must look beyond the realm of our natural experience for a validation of our certainty A famous philosopher Rene Descartes once stated I am therefore I exist This statement holds the only truth found for certain in our natural experience that as conscious beings we exist Whether we are our own creators a creation or the object of evolution just as long as we believe that we think we are proved to exist Thinking about our thoughts is an automatic validation of our self-consciousness Descartes claims But certainly I should exist if I were to persuade my self of something And so I should conclude that our existence is a truth and may be the only truth that we should find its certainty From the natural experiences of our being we hold beliefs that we find are our personal truths From these experiences we have learned to understand life with reason and logic we have established our idea of reality and we believe that true perceptions are what we sense and see But it is our sense of reason and logic our idea of reality and our perceptions that may likely to be very wrong Subjectiveness or personal belief is almost always liable for self-contradiction Besides the established truth that we exist there are no other truths that are certain for the fact that subjective truth may be easily refuted Every person possesses his or her own truth that may be contradicting to another persons belief A truth or one that is true for all cannot by achieved because of the constant motion of circumstances of who said it to whom when where why and how it was said
