For what something states it can be absolutely true.
I'm wondering if we think of absolute in different terms. Absolutely true means true in all circumstances, places, times. I was born female. That will always be true, no matter where I go, what I do, how much time has passed - even in 12,533 years, it will remain true. I am female and 28yrs old. That will not always be true so it cannot be absolute even if it is more precise.
I guess you would have to show me how simply stating that I was born female isn't absolutely true for what it states.
And besides - you're not actually arguing that absolute truth doesn't exist, but that our language struggles to convey it adequately.
