The accuracy of the most of the data that the positive sciences have put forward is not only perceived by reasoning but also with eyes. For example, all of the details about solar and lunar eclipse of the sun and the information given long before exactly come out after a period of time. This shows th ...more

Of course there is an Absolute Truth. But it is beyond the capacity of the human mind to comprehend it. We all try to see it from different angles and fight with each other over it
