facts have an external source, quality, and existence.
through our senses we evolve.
our brain develops by receiving stimulation from the outside world.
and to that information we could call "facts".
So a fact by your definition is not an eternal truth, but only an objective truth (objective being made up of all human subjective knowledge, what can be proven without doubt to be true for all humans)?
Because you say our brain just interprets the stimulations it receives from outside, that means that everything we know is 'just' an interpretation and so it cannot be an absolute truth. But if I my senses deceive me and I perceive something that doesn't actually exist, then I would argue that in this case my brain misinterpreted the information and it is no fact. A fact can only be something that every human being can also be able to perceive to give this supposed 'fact' any credibility and make it a fact.
You've already said you agree that a fact is not an eternal truth, but then to make it a human objective truth it must be something that is subjectively true for any human.
In which case this sentence doesn't make much sense at all:
when i see a fact that God and love have a connection
as you cannot prove a connection between Love and God to every human, only to those who
a) believe a God exists
b) believe love is some kind of force or anything likewise
It's not a fact at all, then.[/quote]
i think you are misreading my words.
what i said is not that everything we know is just an interpretation. i didn't mean to touch that subject. i meant to say that we base our thoughts on facts, and that every fact can turn into a thought in our mind. think of it as two levels: the external, and internal. in the external facts are. and, they are indeed facts. eternal facts.
in the internal our minds are.
from the external we take information into the internal, where we process it.
the facts out there remain facts.
but each one of us grows different trees on them.
