What is truth in our existence? What is something that cannot be changed?

Post something that is true. 

For example, 2 +2 = 4. Not 3 or 5.

It is a myth that shotguns do not have to be aimed or that they are inaccurate. The truth is that shotgun pellets do not spread at close to short range as much as misinformed people believe that they do, it is at far longer ranges when the pellets have spread out extensively, and shotguns can be quite accurate within 100m, and even further range with the use of a slug shotshell.

Can confirm this.

I identify as a shotgun pellet and i can definitely say that whatever this guy said about me is 100% accurate. (I'm the source)

Truth = something factually regarded as just. Something that is always repeatable and verifiable.

What is something that cannot be changed? Stupidity.

Sonikkumania makes threads.

 

I am not saying anything about the quality of them. You were asking to post true things.

It doesn't have to be in parallel universes where the concept of X means Y is cancelled out in favor of dark laws that we yet know nothing about.

 

Since we cannot rely on that, we retain that 2 + 2 = 4. But it doesn't have to be. There should always be room for interpretation.

But 2 + 2 does equal 5. This fact is even proven in a Where's Waldo book:

I'll keep my fingers crossed for the results of interpretation.

Lets assume a system of computation that is based around ternary numbers.  These have the values of 0, 1, and 2.  If we use this simple information, we can then see that 2 + 2 = 11. (2(0) + 2(0) = 1(1) + 1(0)) - naturally, we can surmise this is in fact a decimal value of 4, but the result of the computation in ternary stands.

It is true that all of my external senses would lead me to assume that i do indeed exist and that my internal sense questions the veracity of that as being fact

It's only true because humans agreed to consider so. It is called conventional truth. What's the ultimate truth then? Nobody actually knows. Let that sink in.

According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyway because bees don't care what humans think is impossible.

Many games use the term rocket launcher and missile launcher interchangeably but they are actually quite different from each other. A rocket launcher fires a rocket propelled grenade that’s trajectory is based on propellant and elevation. A missile launcher missile’s trajectory can be controlled while it is in the air. So basically, one is an unguided projectile, and the other is a guided one.

Yeah, earth could be flat or life's a simulation if you really consider, but in practice we need this conventional truth in our everyday logic.

So, true no more or less.

The way I've seen it for many years, there are two forms of truth. The first kind is conventional, fact-based realities we have been able to observe using the scientific method. The second kind is your own subjective truth based on your own personal belief system regarding what you know in your heart to be either real or ideal involving your own moral compass and all that jazz.
