Finding Truth What is truth? We observe that our senses are fallible, and that most knowledge we acquire ultimately comes from other human observations that are subject of errors in observation, measurement, and logical fallacies. Even the industry of science is subject to human whims and the law of supply and demand. It would be easy at this point to throw our hands into the air, and say that we cannot know anything for sure, but I would see this as one of the greatest tragedies of the human experience. Ultimately irrefutable truth can be found if one is diligent in their search to find it. A popular idea within the past ten years that has circulated through the academic and philosophical arenas is called relativism. This ideology says that there is no absolute truth, meaning that no one can claim that their ideas are right, or better than anyone elses ideas.
