YOU have chosen to be DISHONEST about the nature of what we were reasoning.
You are now saying, "Whether I choose to call this sort of truth transcendant or absolute is to me synonymous, though obviously to you it is not."
However, it was you who joined the thread and introduced the term "transcendant" (although I spell it "transcendent" which means "transcending normal or physical human experience”).
In your first post to this thread you said: "There would seem to be a view of truth as 'facts', verifiable aspects of the nature of the universe, such as those you have nominated, and another of truth as being a transendant underlying principle that may well unify or be the foundation of these facts.”
Why introduce the term to show a difference in the nature of what we were discussing, then try to suggest you meant you were using the word interchangeably (contradicting your previous statement)?
Anyhow, I stand by my view of you being sly and passive aggressive (a quality I dislike in Whites).
