1) It's not that narrow really. I am not claiming that reality is not as we suppose. I am claiming that without relying on the existence of God it is impossible to prove that an exact representation of reality exists i.e. that 'truth' exists. So far no-one has been able to disprove my claim.(Original post by SunnysideSea)
1) This is a very narrow use of the word 'truth'. But accepting it, what reasons do you have for thinking we cannot know with a reasonable degree of certainty that reality is not as we suppose? Any examples?
2) The statement 'we do not know the truth about reality' is, presumably, a truth about reality, so your position is self-defeating.
2) It's not self defeating because of the caveat 'if God exists'. Therefore truth can exist as long as there is a God according to the definition I have given ('an entity of absolute power that is timeless and permanent.')
