There are a whole lot of aspects about your statement that I would like to challenge:
"It leaves no tracks": Yes it does. Sherlock Holmes, policemen and lawyers rely on tracks being left, albeit invisible ones, but tangible. Truth in
terms of action is to a degree traceable. We can deduce an incident by the evidence left behind.
"it cannot be manipulated": Yes it can. Deceit relies on that being the case. Granted, once it has been manipulated it is no longer truth, but a lie.
Truth is tangible. Any action has a reality, what actually took place. If we can describe that accurately in terms of our own perception then we have
told the truth.
Some scientists believe comets brought water here. I don't think they did (many scientists don't either). One of these assertions is truth and if we
can find the proper evidence we shall know.
In the legal system the whole process is about trying to find the truth beyond doubt. Just the fact that sometimes innocent people are found guilty
proves how fallible humans are at establishing truth beyond doubt.
John 8:32; ""Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.""
Jesus said He knew the truth and that the truth is a way to free ourselves from some lie and illusion we live. He said that His Word was the truth and
following it was the way to finding truth and being free. Is that a total lie? It is either a lie or truth.
I keep well away from anyone who says they have monopoly on the truth. In accordance with fact and reality; I guess that is truth. Is Jesus in
accordance with fact and reality? Is anyone?
