    Truth - that which can never disproven.

    Beer - A liquid that when made properly and cooled to the right temperatures, can be equated to a bottled orgasm.

    Truth is not "untrue"

    Beer..? A barrel load of fattening forgetfulness.:p

    Truth is an attribute of a proposition which measures the extent to which it coheres with reality.

    I'm going to disagree with this for the simple fact that no one should post anything that requires this much thought this early on a saturday morning (which brings us back to the beer question).

    Good point! But you left out beer. No discussion of truth is ever comprehensive without beer.

    Think of a map, my dear Fluffy. The map is true or false to the extent it accurately predicts the terrain it refers to, yes?

    And beer is good or bad to the extent it makes us unable to negotiate terrain, yes?

    Truth to me is a subjective concept that could only be verified and validated by the individual.:)

    And, of course you need the beer to hold down the corners of the map.

    Truth is irrelevant. Beer is completely relevant (and in the form of Shipyard's Pumpkinhead Ale right now).

    You want truth, Phil?

    *opens beer bottle with teeth, takes long swig, and smashes bottle over head*

    Now who's ready for a round on the trampoline?




    Peace,

    The truth is what is.

    The truth is that I can't drink beer.

    I believe there is an absolute truth. Either it is true, partly true, or not true at all. In a lot of instances we don't know the difference.

    Beer is a good social lubricant that does help ugly people get laid.

    Truth is undiscernable. We create images of our selves, of our wife, of our husband, of our boss, of our Gods. So every time you see that object. the image pops up. Hinduism calls it a veil. Toltec wisdom discribes it as seeing life in a smokey mirror.

    And Beer causes hazy vision.

    I remember the "drunk" goggles in school, that supposedly emulate how it is to be drunk. I have never had hazy vision while drunk, and I actually get around drunk much easier than I did wearing those goggles. I feel let down the public school system lied to me again.

    Seeking truth can send your head spinning.

    And so can beer.

    Truth is the fantasy that you choose as reality.

    Beer is not as good as liquor.

    Truth is a good name for beer.

    Beer is a good name for truth.

    Imagine trying to focus on a bottle with "The Truth" on the label at step 7 as Dop put it.
