That does not alter the fact that absolute truth is only to be found inside a well-defined logical system.That kind of truth may, or may not, correspond to the real world.Also, we can be wrong about what we think we see or experience.
After a while though, Junior started making friends.
It first started with him finding Penelope in the bathroom barfing her guts out.
At first Junior didn't like himself; he was constantly beaten up (but saved by his best friend, Rowdy), he had a lisp and stutters so he had no self-confidence.
When he made the decision to go to Reardan, a white school, even Rowdy left him.
One way or another, these are all truths because they are logically true. "In two national surveys conducted by Barna Research, one among adults and one among teenagers, people were asked if they believe that there are moral absolutes that are unchanging or that moral truth is relative to the circumstances. 22%) adults said truth is always relative to the person and their situation.
Very similar are the propositions of Euclid, because they are proved once the axioms are accepted. According to Martin Luther (the reformer), "I shall never be a heretic; I may err in dispute, but I do not wish to decide anything finally; on the other hand, I am not bound by the opinions of men." So if we consider ourselves to be wise individuals, our concern should be to find the truth not to submit to opinions.He isn't really satisfied with his life, since he's pretty poor, but he gets along.He doesn't really accept himself, since he has multiple medical problems, and he has been beaten up since he was little.The perspective was even more lopsided among teenagers, 83% of whom said moral truth depends on the circumstances, and only 6% of whom said moral truth is absolute." Quite different are empirical truths.All the findings of science are empirical: they are based on evidence, and might be wrong or incomplete.When he starts to gain more friends in this new (American) school, he starts to like and accept himself more than before.In this book, "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian" (by Sherman Alexie), the main theme is about Arnold trying to accept himself.He realizes she is bulimic, and he comforts her and they become friends."Everybody is absolutely shocked that Penelope chose me to be her new best friend," (pg.Junior is a budding cartoonist growing up on the Spokane Indian reservation.Born with a variety of medical problems, he is picked on by everyone but his best friend.
