Do you swear to tell the truth and nothing but the truth as you place your hand on a Bible full of lies so help you GOD?

     ...  Just a few interesting quotes  about truth......    



“The investigation of the truth is in one way hard, in another easy. An indication of this is found in the fact that no one is able to attain the truth adequately, while, on the other hand, no one fails entirely, but everyone says something true about the nature of all things, and while individually they contribute little or nothing to the truth, by the union of all a considerable amount is amassed.”

Aristotle, Metaphysics

The philosopher is in love with truth, that is, not with the changing world of sensation, which is the object of opinion, but with the unchanging reality which is the object of knowledge. (Plato)


And isn't it a bad thing to be deceived about the truth, and a good thing to know what the truth is? For I assume that by knowing the truth you mean knowing things as they really are.


What is at issue is the conversion of the mind from the twilight of error to the truth, that climb up into the real world which we shall call true philosophy. (Plato, Republic)



Those whose hearts are fixed on Reality itself deserve the title of Philosophers. (Plato)

One trait in the philosopher's character we can assume is his love of the knowledge that reveals eternal reality, the realm unaffected by change and decay. (Plato)

And this is proof of what I am saying right here, thanks.  You are quoting a scripture from Jesus, taken as fact and portrayed as truth when in fact it is a completely fictional account of something that was created to control the masses and hide the truth.

What`s wrong with a truth that we are all one in spirit,and one day we will know that truth?

This reminds me of a quote from Richard Linklater's  film, Waking life - "They say that dreams are only real as long as they last. Couldn't you say the same thing about life?"
