I believe it is impossible for humans to tell the absolute truth… it’s in our blood.
We are genetically incapable of telling the TRUTH without compromise or exaggeration.
That simple truth is also why we are so driven to seek out “truth”, yet so willing to allow the “little white lies” to be told and accepted.
Them: “Place one hand on the Bible, raise your other hand. Do you solemnly swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God?”
Us: “I do.”
The absolute truth is exceptionally powerful and dangerous.
