Devotion to the truth is the hallmark of intelligence.
To tell the truth is to reveal one's intelligence. The truth stands above the moral rung of the philosophical ladder. To tell the truth, requires acknowledgment of the rational nature of human beings. However, not all persons do or are able to, function rationally. Case in point: Suicide bombers and child kidnapping, raping, murdering, bastards.
It is impossible to formulate a truth in the absence of a properly formulated moral principle. And it is impossible to formulate a moral principle in the absence of a properly formulated ethical principle, which is impossible to formulate in the absence of a properly formulated epistemological principle, which is impossible to formulate in the absence of a properly formulated metaphysical principle.
In other words, to tell the truth depends on knowing what it is one is talking about. And knowing, as we have seen, is that automatically occurring sensual event that takes place between two real objects when at least one of these objects is a brain.
To tell a truth is to reveal the existence of some aspect of physical reality. To tell a truth is to reveal that upon which its sensual, factual, conscious, perceptual, rational, conceptual, and intellectual nature depends. To tell a truth is to provide to another the physical evidence required to validate that the truth is a derivation of something one knows to be the case. To tell a truth is to bring into the sensual range of the other that upon which its rational existence depends.
The truth explains the nature of human nature, and the nature of human nature is governed by the laws of reality. It is impossible to tell a truth outside the laws of reality, outside the laws of nature governing that on which a proper human existence depends. It is impossible, to tell the truth about God outside the laws of nature governing the happy existence of human beings right here on earth.
The issue is not, “Does God exist?”
Nor is it, “What is God?”
The issue is, “Why does God Exist?”
Why did the human mind create God?
Why did the human mind bring God into existence?
