Facts vs. Opinions


When did facts become like they're an opinion?

Not understanding this wave of denying them

Like it's a matter of opinion we can agree

To disagree on? Seriously, what the hell is going on?

A very poignant post. :)

It is a fact that people do not always understand the emotional needs that thier opinions/comments serve. It is also a fact that without facts, opinions and comments could not be broadcast or indeed be posted on this site. That said, it would be nice to escape the facts of reality, from time to time, as there are many people i would wish were only, in fact, an illusion.

You've touched on one of the big problems with society today. Facts have become opinions and and news has become advertisements. Nicely done :)

Facts only can exist in a universe with a supreme being. Such a being is needed to establish and enforce the difference between truth and falsehood. In a universe without a supreme being, incontrovertible truth is impossible to establish. Thus, a "fact" is the same as an opinion. I happen to live in a universe without a supreme being. If you think that I'm mistaken, I dare you to try to prove me wrong.

The fakes and fake fakes. Depend on who is arguing them! Depends on looking for as much as can be found out by searching
, filtering throue all what you can find! I have a thuerst - ahuger for history, politkes ios of course a major part of it all. Lie working on a giant puzall, looking for what fits in toTHATpuzzal! Some times I think, I havbe the geter pitcher. THEn, anotyher part turns up, THEN, the puzla , needes to be largerly started! The puzzel that is hisstory - politikes, is always a work in progress!

Couldn't agree more. Facts are confused with lies, opinions, false news, or whatever you want to call them these days. Facts need to come back and be respected as facts. Thanks for posting on this frustrating subject.
