By “truth,” I don’t wish to beat a dead horse in terms of the whole “objective vs. subjective truth” line of discussion. Rather, I mean can there be different versions of objective truths? (Or facts) Let me provide an example to illustrate what I’m asking. So, you and a friend watch a movie together, at the same time. You both discuss it with one another after it finishes. Instead of agreement, you both get into a spirited debate over the plot and ending. But, the writers clearly have a certain, central message that they wish for their audience to understand. Is it possible for and your friend to be correct? Is it possible for both of your “truths” to be objective? Not subjective, but objective. If you were to tell your version of the movie’s plot to a friend, inspiring your friend to watch it, and that friend agrees with your version, is your initial friend...wrong? With math, things are less grey but with science, I’ve read a number of posts on this forum that seem convincing. But with scientific theories to be accepted as truths, they need to be peer reviewed and agreed upon by a majority. Right? That is probably not as grey as I’d prefer for this conversation. If I’m convinced of someone’s truth, is that enough? I ask because of my thread, A Christmas Carol and how members here who have viewed its different adaptations in their own free time, come away with their versions of the truth. Or are we more forgiving when it comes to literature, film and art? One final question - can objective truth have many versions? Is a fact not a fact if you and I see things differently? I look forward to our own spirited discussion on this topic.
