There is TRUTH and then there is FACT. Similar, but with a bit of difference. TRUTH is something that remains the same through out the time. What was true yesterday, is true today, and it will be true tomorrow. Truth does not change with time, it remains the same. But FACT is different. It doesn't necessarily have to remain constant through out the time, in fact, it changes with time. FACT is just a description of the present state. As time passes, the state changes, and the fact about that state changes along with it. Let me give you some examples. Fire is hot. This statement is true because fire is always hot. Now try another one. There are nine planets in our solar system. This statement is fact because it is true only for now. Until someone finds the tenth planet, this statement is true, but once someone finds the tenth planet, this statement must be changed from 'nine planets' to 'ten planets'. So it changes with time, so it's not truth, it's just a fact. Now why am I desperately trying to distinguish the difference between TRUTH and FACT? Because I want to see if the statement below is TRUE or JUST A FACT. Men are equal. (Oh oh... here I go again...) In order to even consider if men are equal or not, we must conjure up at least two men in our minds. You'll need at least a couple to compare, right? So let's draw two men and compare them. See if they're equal. The first man. Who shall we draw? Let's draw a soldier. Nice helmet and mustache. Now the second man. Who shall we draw? Let's draw an Indian. Just ran from the forest and reached the beach. And there they meet. The two men from two worlds. A Spanish Conquistador... and an Aztec Indian. If you asked them if men were equal, what would they have said?
