Thank you for sharing your reflections about "truth". I appreciated your descriptions of truth and the lack of certainty about any of them. Your use of dialog was very effective. I enjoyed the eye-catching picture also. Be safe and well- Joan

A great piece on truth, sort of a debate or deep discussion, between father and son.

I like the patience of the father, Samuel, as he attempts to satisfy the insistent curiosity of his son. How many such conversations do we have with our children? And yet, this conversation is unique in it's depth and desire of the child to truly understand a concept that's so hard to define.

Great job,
Rhonda

To me truth is best defined as being absent of deceit and reliant on absolute and/or accepted and established fact. And I guess that's why in our courts of law guilt must be proven and not innocence. This is why a person accused is acquitted rather than declared innocent.

I find this posting quite difficult to follow. The opening is somewhat stilted. Why not a simple statement, "Father, what is truth?"
The fourth paragraph a ramble that is somewhat convoluted and does not answer the question, what is truth.
Why is truth capitalized? Think this posting needs some work.
Good topic but presentation needs some work.

    I acknowledge with thanks the acceptance of your suggestions.


    But, I need your clarifications for and explanations to your following sentence.

    Why not a simple statement, "Father, what is truth?"

    In your review, you have written the aforesaid sentence with a suggestion to be followed by me.

    But, I am sorry, I need your clarification, because I do not understand the grammatically wrong, incorrect, incomplete and inexpressive sentence, I think.

    Please clarify your sentence with explanation from English Grammar and help me to understand your suggestion correctly, completely and expressively.

    Please help me to learn more.

    I am sorry to note your fourth sentence in the review, if you read thoroughly, the answer to the question, what is truth, is there in my fourth paragraph, not in the word you expect, but it is there, but you have missed the answer.

    "No, it is not a complete definition of truth; truly, I don't know a complete definition; moreover, I never found a complete, full, universally acceptable, or scientific definition. There are definitions in thousands; the authors and writers of different known and unknown subjects have published incomplete definitions of truth," Samuel answered.

    Please read it thoroughly, you will find the answer.

    I do not defend or plead my work anyway.

    I have just written the fact as fact.

    With the kindest personal regards,

    Please look at your watch, you have already taken, used or wasted about 15 hours just to write an answer to my simple question.

    Please hurry and send explanations and clarifications etc to your wrongly, incorrectly and inexpressively written sentence, and about your misinterpretation and misunderstanding of the fourth stanza of my work, as you have expressed in your review of my work.


    Please let me know the truth.


    Promotion of my work will expire soon and it will no longer be listed on the available release listing and I will continue losing a lot for your mistakes.


    Thanking you in advance,


    With the kindest personal regards,

Al,

God, Himself is truth, we know this. There is no darkness or lie in Him.

This was an interesting piece and I enjoyed reading it. Thank you for sharing.

Yes, God knows!
You did a good job explaining the different facts of truth and logic. I like the progression of ideas. Everything fits together with the ultimate one being God's word. Thanks for sharing. Respectfully, Jan

An "AWESOME 229 Word Fiction," penning, dear friend! If I were asked, "What is truth?" I'd say in seven words, "It's what's left when void of lies!" The Artwork is "Astonishing," while the Author's Notes are "Extremely kind and Impressive." Six Star (plus) worthy; yet, I haven't any. IOU! Thanks for sharing this "Stupendous Presentation, best wishes in life, and God Bless!" Respectfully with Admiration, Cathy (Tootie) and Bill (Commando).

This is an interesting topic to explore. How about, truth is anything that is not a lie? So many people are deceived by fancy language skills, but deception is a lie.

Wow! I think, unless the son is far smarter than me- and he may well be- that Daniel's struggle to find Truth was better off before teh questions taht after he had heard the answers?

As always, your works are thought-provoking.
