Absolute Truth?

It has been said that “absolute truth” is something that is true no matter who believes in it. It is said to be something established by a “higher being”. But what I don’t understand is how we know *who* that higher being is and why that higher being is right. I know Christians believe that the Bible is what tells us what and who is right, but what about non-Christians.

Christians believe with all of their hearts that what they believe is really real, but so do Hindu and Buddhists and all of those other religions.

Who is to objectively say who is wrong and who is right? To believe in the teachings of Christianity, takes faith, and faith is not “absolute”. There is always a measure of uncertainty in faith, thus, there is no “absolute” way of proving who is right and who is wrong until the end is upon us.


There is, in truth, no beauty.

Truth is relative.
I don’t understand all of this talk about how there is “absolute truth” and nothing else. It is an absolute truth that God exists, but there are truths that are not “absolute”. For example, there is in truth, no beauty, because what you call beautiful might be ugly to me. I find redheads attractive, but I know others that find redheads repulsive. So that proves that there is a such thing as “relative truth”.
