Universal Truth and Accepted Truth

Published by theuglywriter on

Fake news and fake people. We have lots of these in our generation. In the age of social media and fast internet connection, you would think that it would be easy to know the truth right? if so, then how is it that a lot of people still fall for fake news?

But fake news is not the topic at hand. Our time is too valuable to even debate such atrocity.

We live in the era where there are two kinds of “truth”. The first, universal truth, is what is indeed right, correct and valid. This is the truth that is real and fugly. The other one, the accepted truth, is the kind of option where people are more comfortable with – whether it’s real or not. Sometimes, people choose and stay with a decision they find more appealing or easy. You can even call this as fascism.

Truth is never subjective. There is only one. But opinions vary. Sometimes, people who strongly believe their opinion feel that their side is the right side, even if it’s quite the contrary. Nothing is more dangerous than a man who thinks he is right.

Which side do you belong? Are you the kind who fights for what is right or the kind who fights for which one is more convenient?

I Would choose the universal truth because i still believe in facts. I amca person who only believes if I see it on my own eyes or if i experienced a certain thing. I do not just listen to hear-say because i will just be the loser in the end if I don’t have any evidence that it is true.

FIN 144 NATIONAL UNIVERSITY Universal truths are absolute truth which all people are affected. For example, all people will get sick, all people will get old and all people will die. An accepted truth is a belief in nature, it is something that you hold on even without verifying it. For example, the standards of the society which people normally do everyday like their responsibilities in paying taxes and going to school. We all believe in the universal truths and accepted truth. But what makes truth right? In the context of the article, a truth is right when you fight… Read more »

I think I would still choose the universal truth rather than fooling myself with the accepted truth. It may be more easier to choose the accepted truth since it is more convenient, and for the meantime by believing on that I will be contented; but I don’t think I’ll be completely happy with that, in the long run I will still seek for the universal truth that would give me peace of mind. In the end, we may have different views/opinions but we are all bounded by rules and restrictions, it doesn’t make something a valid truth just because it… Read more »

People who dwell with the truth are those people who value honor and integrity. But let’s not forget that sometimes, choosing the right thing to do causes pain and agony. Our world is filled with lies, so in times of confusion, you should strive for the right information. Don’t let yourself look dumb like those whom outrageously share unsupported facts online. Excercise integrity so that people will trust you. Don’t be the boy who lives in a small village who shouts that there is a wolf and cries for the villagers’ help even though there were no wolves. He did… Read more »

I would choose the universal truth, because for me telling the truth and making someone cry is better than telling a lie and making someone smile. Also, people always wants the truth because for them the truth may hurt for a little while, but a lie hurts Forever.

Additional answer:

I always wondered what if the best answer is not in the choices? I mean, we always undergo this vicious cycle of choosing the truth we or others want to believe. Perhaps what I can say is, truth is a matter of relativity. Sometimes, being able to able to weigh which kind of truth you need to use in different is situations is better. It is more of which among the choices of truth is the best or in some cases, least worst.

Truth gives us way to live peacefully– wherein everyone can go without any worries and doubts. Universal truth gives us standards of which one should be considered. Without verification, we are right to the eyes of the other people. To the extent, living here is not only about what is good for yourself; indeed, making sense and doing what is better for everyone of us.

On behalf of the question above, i would choose the universal truth which more about what is right, correct and truth.

Innovations rendering old teachings and values obsolete is wrong. because what is the essence of fighting the truth if you are teaching obsolete to other people!

Bea Marie C. Palentinos ACT181 Globalization is unpredictable but is it all based on truths and facts. We can never say of its effect not until we place ourselves in it. Truth can either inspire or destruct an idea, through is simpleness and understanding. Too much convenience can result to inability to do something and soon be inconvenient. So I say that I will strongly fight for what is right, not because it sets us free but it helps us to be better in decision making.

The truth is the our basis on how we decide to do things knowing the truth makes us more aware about our surroundings ,truth is important in globalization, because of it we learn about other nation who they really are or what they do,whether we liked to adapt their culture and traditions we base our decision to what we know as the truth, in our modern world lies are dominant than truth, lies covers up the truth but whatever happens the truth always find a way to reveal itself and teach us lessons.

The truth is really important to us. Many fake news have been disseminate today because of media today. Many opinions you can see on media today and you do not know what is true and what is fake and we need to be more smart and careful for what we will believe and do not depend your knowledge on the media today. Be smart of choosing the right source of information.

Telling the truth is still important in globalization’s innovations render old teachings and values obsolete as it help us to learn from other people. On our generation we can experience fake news around the country by just surfing through the net etc. For this situation many netizens don’t want to trust other people that they met through social media by the influence of the fake news. So for me globalization should contain truthfulness not only here in the present but also in future.

Establecida, Adriel ACT181. Truth is still important to Globalization. Specially in the world of social media. What we see in social media is unpredictable if it is true or not. Many fake news is spreading out. This makes us confused in making desicions. It can change people’s life and ideas so, for me think smart, think wise in what will you beleive. The truth start in our selves. If were not true to our self . It is hard for us to notice what is the truth and a lie.

In Globalization, I believe that truth is more important because, in our generation, we can encounter fake news around the country by simply surfing through the internet and etc. And also I’m a person who believes in what I see not just understand what others saying. Because there is a big difference between listening to someone’s experience and having that experience ourselves.

For traditional beliefs and superstitions the truth about this is modern days now is not recognized anymore.
Now technology in our daily lives applies and the truth about this in modern globalization is that every inch we used in household, offices, shops/supermarkets, schools and other establisments is run by technology. Therefore, the old teachings and other beliefs are not important now and not recognized in modern world/globalization.

The truth is still important in Globalization and will always be important. It is the basis of everything, we cannot know if a certain thing is true or lie without basis. If our world is full of lies it will affect a lot of things and people. I’d rather know the hurtful truths than to live in the word full of illusions. We must spread and give the truth because it’s hard to live in a world that full of lies.

I would still go with the universal truths. Even it would hurt much, it would be better than be fed by sweet lies. Everyone should accept that reality sucks. So enough with fooling yourself by convenient lies, since it is way more better to be aware by the truth and make a decision to fix it. Soon, you will learn something from it and won’t regret that you choose to be wise.

That universal truth teach you to be a good man or good woman and will be honest no matter how painful the situation you will state the truth. its better to face a sad truth than to be happy at a wrong fact.

The real truth should not vary on what the majority thinks as stated to the accepted truth. I believe that the universal truth should still be considered in every decision making. People who express what they think are the truth but otherwise, are merely just an opinion.
An example of a universal truth is the rules. No one is exempted to the rules whether people are aware or unaware.
For example is the “no jaywalking” policy. Just because many are not obeying this policy, it doesn’t mean that jaywalking is not punishable and that could be an acceptable truth.

I am an Iphone user for a long time. I tried some android gadgets as well but I love using Apple mobile phones. Not to mention the following reasons why; first, It’s much faster; second, better hardware integration; third, OS updates when you want them.

Harvy Mendoza

I’m actually a long time user for android. I tried using Iphones before but I don’t like some of its feature, tho’ it’s a good device. But I really love using Android gadgets, I’ll support my bias.

5 reasons why to choose Android over Iphone:

1.) Majority of the population uses Android.
2.) Prices fit your needs.
3.) It’s easy to customize (both physical apperance and it’s interface).
4.) Much compatible to different devices.
5.) Lastly, more free apps and games.
