To explain the meaning behind the blog:
From the Latin ‘uber verum-i’ which translates to ‘Abundant Truth’. I seek to unravel today’s mysteries, using all the modern technology of the internet to find the truth and goodness in the world. Uber verum-i literally means an abundance of truth, and I seek to show you as much information as I can.
Time Saving Truth from Falsehood and Envy, François Lemoyne, 1737
Truth has a variety of meanings, such as the state of being in accord with fact or reality. It can also mean having fidelity to an original or to a standard or ideal. In a common usage, it also means constancy or sincerity in action or character. The direct opposite of truth is falsehood, which can correspondingly take logical, factual or ethical meanings.
However, language and words are essentially “tools” by which humans convey information to one another. As such, “truth” must have a beneficial use in order to be retained within language. Defining this potency and applicability can be looked upon as “criteria”, and the method used to recognize a “truth” is termed a criterion of truth. Since there is no single accepted criterion, they can all be considered “theories”.
Various theories and views of truth continue to be debated among scholars and philosophers. There are differing claims on such questions as what constitutes truth; what things are truthbearers capable of being true or false; how to define and identify truth; the roles that revealed and acquired knowledge play; and whether truth is subjective or objective, relative or absolute.
My goal is to seek the truth, and to show an abundance of information to support the theory. In a world filled with falsehoods and misinformation, it is always important to seek the truth, and to find an abundance of information to support it. If you cannot find enough information, maybe you need to dig deeper, or perhaps the truth presents a different meaning. Often you end up finding out that the opposite is true of where you started out. Are you prepared to accept that many of the truths you currently believe in are false?
