look up any word, like hipster:
Something which would probably upset a great many of people if it were known and made public.
Truthfully speaking, most people have no idea of what the truth actually is.

Antidote to fear.
I’m not worried about catching a vomit comet on the flying pig flu because I got injected with the truth last night. This is just another contaminated plot by BIG Pharma to sell the dumbfahkastani Americans millions of high profit margin death-shots called vaccines. The action is in the reaction. The flu won’t kill you, even the so-called ‘patient zero’ Edgar Hernandez survived. It’s the vaccines that will kill you. Don’t get the shots. The Amish have a zero percent Autism rate, zero percent Diabetes rate, zero percent Alzheimer’s rate, near zero percent Cancer rate. Don’t get the shots.

“I feel great. But I had a headache and a sore throat and a fever for a while. I had to lay down in bed.” - Edgar Hernández, five-year-old boy, answering Reporter Ruth Maclean questions on April 29, 2009 and seemingly unaware that the swine flu he contracted a few weeks ago — the first known case — has almost brought his country to a standstill and put the rest of the world on alert.

The truth is like a lingering fart...everyone can smell it, everyone knows its there, but no one wants to admit it.
John: The truth hurts man.
Mike: It can also smell like ass too.

Myth: The Truth will set you free

Fact: The Truth will get the living hell beaten out of you or perhaps worse killed.
Person: Alright, here's the truth... I lied

Person 2: WHAT?!? HOW DARE YOU. *beats person 1 up with a stick*

What the world is afraid of. The things we hide from ourselves because it changes us, makes us uncomfortable, and awakens us that there are absolutes. There is truth.
1/3 the world dies of poverty every year. Smoking kills. You are fake. There is a God. etc. Truth stares us in the face but we look away, terrified to make eye contact with something that judges our actions and lives.

1. Something that is real, absolute.
2. Those kids that run around lecturing about how cigarettes are bad for you. Something we already know.
<Definition1> I never lie, I always tell the truth.
<Definition2> If I ever meet those kids from truth, I will kick their a$$es.

What simply is.

Understanding the world around us is something often difficult to discuss or even completely understand. Almost all-human understanding is composed of symbol sets designed to measure and then define the world and human experience. The symbols are not truth, but what they are attempting to measure is true reality.

Calculus and other forms of mathematics are symbol sets that represent tools for measuring aspects of our true reality. We know these symbol sets work from experiential knowledge, not simply symbolic manipulation.

The scientific method is a reasoned way of attempting to find and catalogue the truth. With reproducible experiential tests we can come to understand if our symbolic measurements actually represent truth.

The concept that truth will set you free mentioned in the Bible is actually ironically true. Belief is the opposite of truth and truth itself breaks down all belief. Truth does not respect belief nor does it need belief to function because it simply is. Truth is what will always exist even if there is no existence. Truth is the beginning and the end and everything. Truth is rare for us to understand but it is also always present and always available.

The truth is amazing because it simply is. Truth isn’t something we can know; it is something we have to experience.

That is often why experience is considered of greater value than academics. Because an experienced person has worked with reality to create, design, produce and solve problems. An Academic though often focuses on the symbol set manipulation and lacks experiential knowledge for true understanding of what is reality versus fictional representations of abstract concepts.
There is only one thing that exists in all the universe, it is the truth and nothing but the truth.

Science is the measuring stick of truth. Science is not the truth, but it is our tool to measure the truth.
