The main point of Mike Caetano’s letter of March 25 is that truth is not absolute. Is that absolutely true? If truth is not absolute, then logically, the statement that truth is not absolute is false as it fails to meet its own standard. It is a self-defeating, nonsensical statement.
For centuries philosophers, scientists and theologians have recognized that truth is absolute. Yet the modern mantra of relative truth persists. This can lead to false ideas about life. For example, C. S. Lewis recognized the absurdity of expecting virtue from people who are taught that no virtue exists. Truth is absolute.
