Yes, this topic is very broad but it has been the question that MANY people have tried to slove, but could not. Let's see who tried and came close... Socrates, Aristotle , and Plato. Plato had is allegory of the cave, but I am putting this debate up here so we could possibly brainstorm what truth might be and how to possibly find it! May the truth be with you :P ~

^yes Alexios I was the king of Byzantium during the crusades XD

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.
Pride and Prejudice is not an universal truth.
Well that's because that was meant to be a joke, if you wanted to know my answer read the next reply ;) actually...maybe you shouldn't, my answer was not very interesting and was kind of random, sorry if this has offended you.
Sorry I had to do it!! It was just there!! , now seriously I believe that it's difficult to find an universal truth in a society so divided like ours, the only thing that people can agree as an universal truth is that everybody will die eventually, even Time Lords... that or 42, I'll go with 42, seems like according to the new "rules" Time Lords are almost "immortal" now.
i think this is a question you must answer for yourself.
I agree, but I think others might need to help. After all it is one big job trying to find universal truth.
Truth is relative, thus there can be no universal truth
So then everything is a lie? If there is no universal truth then how can I be sure of anything? Thus there has to be a universal truth,but we haven't found one yet.
That sounds a little nihilistic, but yes, there is no universal truth. All truth is subject to proof, and all proof subject to circumstance and perspective.
You can be sure of two things: death and taxes. :)
A perennial problem with man is our incorrigible belief that there is a greater purpose to our existence, and that there exists some validation for our existence: a raison d'etre, which we perceive as a universal truth. This curtails our objectivity and hinders our search for a universal truth, which can never be found as we will always need the truths to relate to us in some manner.
so if you can be sure of it is it any different from a truth?
hahaha, I walked right into that one.
Because its not a truth, its a sentiment, which was the crux of my original post.
what is the difference?
