Five: Session Two
- Subjectivism is the incorrect
notion that truth is relative to individuals.
Here is what the theory says. (Remember,
this theory is incorrect.)
- Note: Do not confuse subjective claims with subjectivism.
They are different concepts.
- 1.Truth depends upon what each person believes it to be.
- 2. Truth itself is subjective, not objective.
- 3. Subjectivists say things like, "This is my truth and
that's your truth." and, "That may be true for you,
but it's not true for me."
- Consider the following:
- 1. The earth moves around the sun.
- 2. 2 + 2 = 4.
- 3. Bachelors have no wives.
- 4. Dogs aren't cats.
- 5. World War II actually happened.
- Does it make any sense to say these things may be true for
one person but not for another? Of course not.
- 1.If we could make a statement true by believing it to be true,
we'd be infallible.
- 2. If everyone made their own truth, disagreement would be
- 3. EVERYONE would be right!
- 4. That means that the belief the subjectivism is false is
true. That results in a catastrophic contradiction, proving that
subjectivism is false.
