This is how I see it. Some just have more flexibility.

Note that if you answer that there is no absolute truth, you will be quickly and efficiently refuted. Just a heads up!
At the foundation of everything is the potential for anything. That foundation is truth, God, the unknown, source, etc.
It is what all the many truths out there have in common.

Agreeing with BlueSky in general. I also think absolute truth exists when ego dissipates, there are many such moments and the clarity and beauty is obvious, but then the veil returns. I assume for the Masters it does not return, but that's my guess only.

If you really want to know the truth all you have to do is ask yourself the reasons you believe what you do.

Re-thought my answer.

Absolute Truth Does not exist.

For there to be an absolute truth means that you've reached an end of all knowledge seeking. that means perfection, that means death.

Everything that i have learned as truth has been replaced by another truth in time. All i really have is whats in front of me right now what my mind can currently comprehend now. Any truth i have right now is not absolute because in time it will be replaced by another truth either upon death or ascension.

Absolute truth does exist...without it there would only be chaos and this material universe we live in would never have formed.

That said, we are stuck with looking at the absolute truth from our own limited individual perspectives, and that is there the confusion comes in. Individual perspective is subjective no matter how big of a truth one is able to observe.

So people saying that any absolute does not and cannot exist are also saying they don't believe "God" or "Source" is, has, or knows absolute truth. It does not exist in any form or being? This is an absolute then.

You mean the "I" cannot know and "God" cannot know? Is the Spiritual included in saying this!

It is because i believe in god that i know there is no absolute truth.
I know God/source does not have absolute truth. If god had absolute truth he would not have created us. He would not be experiencing himself through us.

If god had the absolute truth he would be perfect and if he was perfect he would be dead. and if god was dead i wouldn't be here now to offer my view.

If something is perfect it has no room for growth and is dead.
Do you think god is dead?
