The Truth I believe is indefinite and it varies for each individual. Hence, what one may consider as truth may be irrelevant to another.
I think that's what makes everyone unique, because not everyone sees the world through the same window, in other words, we all have different perspectives, and beliefs.

I agree. I hate the smug replies you often read on here, like 'No picture? then your lying'
like with ufo's. some people dont want to even entertain the notion that there is even the slightest possibility that they exist.
the evidence may be circumstantial but theres so much of it that if you dumped it in the ocean fiji would be drowned.

Let's not forget that there are those who "prefer" lies. When your eyes are accustomed to darkness they hurt at the first glare of light.

The truth...what is exactly the truth for each individual?
My analogy is: Lets say there are 10 people in a room....and these 10 people are all looking at the same painting.
When each person is asked about the painting....they all say something different....yet their statements are all true...their individual truths.
You can think...well yes...but some truths are all the same.....but are they? For instance...the sky is blue...that seems to be true for all....but....what color of blue....many may differ on that...yet their viewpoints of the color blue are all true to them...their truth.
Why do people seek the truth, when they don't want to hear it...
Truth is just that, truth. It is perceived differently by all, but it is still truth.
