In a social reality, truth is only what 'humans' as in man makes it. The social reality we live in, how we understand who we are and are not and let alone how we perceive each other and in that social complexity perceive the universe, is based on the exchange of information. How much is 'truth'? That depends on what is true... doesn't it. How are we to know what is exactly true? Many scientists rely on equations, math, registers of measurement whether geological or biological and so on. But, how true are those given that man creates the means to understand equations, math and registers or does he?
Issac Newton saw a monotheistic God as the masterful creator whose existence could not be denied in the face of the grandeur of all creation. Newton was an educated, graduated man of prestige.
What about Charles Darwin? Wouldn't or shouldn't he be superior to Newton if we are talking about truth? Darwin stated that all life was evolutionary, did he really know that? Darwin has been called and touted as a 'true' naturalist. What is true about him regarding his education is that he was not a very good student. It probably comes as a surprise to read that he neglected his medical studies and failed the Tripos which is the name for entrance exams into Cambridge and or any of the undergraduate examinations that qualify an undergraduate for a bachelor's degree there.
Also true is that Darwin infuriated his father for failing in medical studies. His father a wealthy society doctor and financier sent him to Christ's College at Cambridge to study for becoming an Anglican pastor. Something he was obviously more akin to graduating from. However, he did not graduate with any such degree. Darwin had to stay at Cambridge until June 1831. There is no record of his merit as a student nor any record of him attaining higher degrees at prestigious universities.
What is truth, is it the 'right' information exchanged and by whom would it be considered 'right'? If there are 'educated' people who spew untruth about Darwin (in the exchange of information) and make him out to be an educated graduated scientific genius of a scientifically founded doctrine called evolution then what is truth in the exchange of information and which is true information?
In our social reality, we give out information when it is convenient, when it gives us an advantage, when it makes us appear in a better light... hence, why some people 'lie' or don't give out the 'right' information. Perhaps, Darwin's social background shed a light on him that only others wanted to see in order to remain in good social circles. What is the truth in social reality? Isn't it what a number of people agree on and seems to work, or at least for those that agree and it becomes a known 'norm' as something 'information' that works even a lie.
However, Darwin had become infatuated with Paley's Natural Theology or Evidences of the Existence and Attributes of the Deity (first
published in 1802), which made an argument for divine design in nature
explaining adaptation as God acting through laws of nature which of
course were created by God the divine designer. Perhaps, Darwin's work was about the truth... but some have corrupted it.
What for? That is a good question. If we use a 'social' quantum analysis, we might conclude that people who know how the wave function works know that once it is observed collapses and cannot change or become anything else or different. Information works like that. Once the 'seed' of the 'false reality' is planted in the mind, it is very unlikely that people's views and opinions will be able to change. In the false reality, those people who planted the false information can control the social reality. Today, we call that propaganda.
If anything Darwin's evolution theory supports man's 'socially' created idea of race. God as the creator, we understand that race does not exist because God made all men Acts 17:25. Some can oppose this truth but can they know the truth or just propose that they know what is true? Can we ever really know about the truth? The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For
in Him all things were created, things in heaven and on earth, visible
and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities.
All things were created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together ~ Colossians 1: 15-17 .… as Newton understood the Cosmic Truth!
"He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together"..."Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth." Col 1: 16, John 17:17.
It is this cosmic truth that holds the social reality truth in check ...
