Mark de LA says
Truth is language congruent with what's so. Truth is time dependent on change & locality. Belief is not necessarily truth. Truth depends upon the organs of perception to the extent that you have to have perception in a sensory channel of some kind to be aware of what that channel conveys about what is so.

Mark de LA says
Conversely a LIE is what someone wishes or would like to have true for his own personal ego's sake. A lie is not what's so. A lie may be what's so for a person who is said to be crazy, out-of- it, not in touch with reality. Reality is congruent with what's so.

Mark de LA says
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness ....

Mark de LA says
The Declaration of Independence proclaims a property that is "self-evident" about truth - the context for that was they way it was held (something endowed by men by a Creator).

Mark de LA says
rather (something endowed by a Creator to men (& probably women))

Mark de LA says
that which was endowed to men (& probably women 100+ years later) was Rights - the context arises from the proclamation that a Creator endowed men with them. If I had an EDIT CAPABILITY FOR COMMENTS - I probably would make this argument more smoothly.

Mark de LA says
Does TRUTH need language? Does any part of existence depend upon language to BE ?

Mark de LA says
Illation & Argumentation have ETHOS, PATHOS & LOGOS as fundamentals.

unknown says
See PDF full of Ethos, Logos & Pathos

Mark de LA says
Argumentation goes toward rationalizing things. Rational is a garbage-in -> garbage-out kind of thing. Bad premises lead to bad conclusions. Not necessarily a method for obtaining TRUTH.

Mark de LA says
Ethos & possibly Pathos seem to be the folksonomy reality.

& then there's Bozo's Sayings

Seth says
"what's so" == "what is true" is just a circle that gets us nowhere.
Truth is language congruent with what's so.
Which, incidentally i agree with, and it says that "Truth" is language. It is just language. It is just statements. Truth are those statements that some agent determins are "congruent" with the rest of the peceptions of that agent. The agent can be a social group or even the class of animals called human. What I am asying is that we have this three place predicate: (statements) are true in (context) to (agency) . And that is all you have. Nothing of this exists in some ether.

unknown says
That's probably because you have no perception in "some ether" or refuse to acknowledge it. There are a bunch of people who say there is NOTHING outside of language, but I have other experience I will go into some other day.

unknown says
Incidently, you wouldnt have 2 different words "truth" and "what's so" (so) without there being different properties of what they are point to.

The earth was FLAT for many years & then it became a sphere when Columbus discovered the West Indies.
