It was about 20 years ago when I first came up with this idea…

The thought goes like this:

Is it an absolute truth that absolute truth doesn’t exist?

Let us assume that someone says that it is an absolute truth that absolute truth doesn’t exist.

This is now in contradiction with the fact that absolute truth doesn’t exist, because the one who denies absolutely the existence of absolute truth is immeditialy in contradiction with existence of absolute truth, because the sayer just stated one absolute truth stating that it would be an absolute truth that absolute truth doesn’t exist.

So, we can’t absolutely deny the existence of absolute truth! That would lead us into logical contradiction.

The question is: Does an absolute truth exist? Do many absolute truths exist?

Of course every truths are not absolute truths, but it seems quite obvious that at least one absolute truth exists. At least denying absolutely the whole concept of absolute truth leads into logical contradiction, as stated earlier…

Just an old thought of mine…
