Of course I don't have a corner on the market of truth. My opinion is just that - one of many billions of opinions.

But it's not my opinion, or your opinion, or any of the other billions of opinions that counts, is it?

Do opinions create reality? Do opinions create truth?

Or is truth just truth, regardless of what anyone believes?

If a person believes a lie, & believes it with all their heart, with the depth of sincerity, will that make the lie become truth? Or will the individual just be deceived about it?

You say that there are many gods, many creators. You're welcome to your opinion, of course. But does your saying it make it true? Or does it just make it your opinion?

If truth is objective, rather than relative, does reality change because someone believes it is relative? Does it change because a million people declare it to be relative?

If a million people declare that gravity is relative, that it only applies to them if they choose to believe it, will that keep them from crashing to the ground if they jump out of a window?

What if truth is truth, regardless of whatever anyone believes? What if there is only one God? What if He created everything that exists? What if He gets to make up reality rather than being dictated to by a million varying opinions? Would a million declaring that they don't believe He exists alter reality or alter His nature? Would one opinion alter that truth, if indeed truth is truth?

If there's room for accepting the possibility that there are many gods, & many creators, is there not also room for the possibility that there is only one God, & only One Creator?

Or are some possibilities more acceptable than others?

There are so many possibilities ... can they all simultaneously be true?

Shalom, Dena
