This is something I wrote on my blog but, I think it might be worth throwing it in everyone's face. It has nothing to do with unicorns, I couldn't be bothered giving it an appropriate title. If you're here for the unicorn, I'm sorry, these are fairly serious words.

There is never going to a universal consensus on anything and people will always conflict with each other based on what they understand or rather, think they understand.

This is especially significant regarding things like religion and politics because, each side is incapable of understanding why anyone would be what they aren't, based on the illusion of truth. For example, I have come to a conclusion that there is no god and religion, in it's simplest form, is just an organised response to the panic of death. I am just as convinced of what I consider to be truth as a Christian who attends church every week. (Bored? Here's that unicorn I said I didn't have Link)

Due to my stance on this subject and the process of which I arrived to it, I am not equipped to understand their position and for the most part, they are not equipped to understand mine. This could be because of a number of variable influences such as; Indoctrination, personal perception, intelligence, faith, sense of belonging, culture, fear, perception of certain experiences, safety and honesty. Humans are not machines and do not operate solely on logic and rationality, just as I feel unchanged by my logical perspective on certain issues, others are just as validating to share an equal unwillingness to change based on their emotional perspective on certain issues.

"illusion of truth"

This is redundant.

It's referring to personal truth.

Regardless, you said the equivalent of "illusion of illusion".

Personal "truth" is no less fabrication than any other kind.

Yawn.

I'm not really interested in insignificant technicalities. Instead of putting "personal truth" I put the "illusion of truth", it still portrays a coherent message. You may aswel have told me that you don't like the font.

The font is atrocious and it detracts from your thesis. I'm gonna go hang out in that other thread that has the exact same font. : pouting:
