Truth: Is there such a thing as truth with a capital T?  If so, how do we find/determine it?  What are the implications?

    "Some people think Aristotle basically had it right when he said, "To say of what is that it is, and of what is not that it is not, is true".  I take it he meant that, for example, if I say this apple is red, what I say is true if this apple actually has the property of being red.  If I say this apple is not red, what I say is true if this apple does not have the property of being red.  What more is there to say?"

      Everyone knows that women have both fewer teeth and fewer brain cells. Fact

      And modern science--contrary to Aristotlian science--would probably demonstrate that males are the ones with the smaller brains. :)

    Truth is a great topic for any Philosophy group and is an important concept, especially with regards to reality vs beliefs. What I'm just as interested in is lie detection as it has more compelling consequences in many situations. Should be an interesting meetup!
