Prove to you that the definition of a fact is a fact? Is that what you are asking?

Ha Ha! I have tried to pull this one on FDG before - watch out! He is clever.

PreacherOfTruth is saying that there are no facts. Every fact is based on SOMEONE'S opinion. Everything that is real was first thought of by someone and so it is that initial person's opinion that it is real and we have adopted that person's opinion.

Christians rely on the Bible to provide facts while you rely on reputable publications. You may have the opinion that your resources are truer than the Christians, but that is only your opinion. You may think: look at how many smart people are in agreement with my opinion. However, I suggest that the number or quality of people who believe something does not make it any more or less true.

You have to admit, science switches up "facts" constantly as they accumulate the data that supports if facts are true or not. Pluto is a planet, that's a fact. You were taught this, why wouldn't you believe it? But since we now know more about planets, science realized that the fact was wrong - Pluto was never a planet, even though we all believed it. Envision our solar system right now (tick, tick, tick)- How many planets did you see? It's hard to unlearn that we have 9 planets, isn't it?

So, how is the dictionary a more authentic truth than the Bible?
