    Good post! Thanks for sharing! I have a friend who is only a young Christian who is currently trying fairly unsuccessfully to create a “designer spirituality” from Christianity and Buddhism. It’s hard to watch because she’s torn between it being all about her and it being all about God…

    Did you ask her whether her conclusion that truth did not matter is true or false?
    Whichever way she answers would not be logically consistent.

    Maybe people don’t understand logic anymore or just do not apply the laws of logic consistently.

    Good post.

    Hi Steve

    I did not ask her that exact question, but in discussions she described how what is right for her may not be right for others. Eg truth is relative.

    I agree that it is not a logically consistent position when reality is that most religions are mutually exclusive.

    Yes, it is a similar question, yet both are self defeating. If a person says that truth is relative, then they are stating an absolute truth, which contradicts their statement that truth is relative.

    You can’t beat the Law of Noncontradiction.
