          “Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts” – John Adams.

            A faint hope, I’m afraid. Is Ireland an island? How many operas did Beethoven write? Does Hamlet exist? How is America governed? Does the earth travel around the sun? None of these has a simple factual answer.

            I think it’s wisest to throw a cordon of uncertainty around everything we hold to be true, however basic or immutable it seems. The next step, that the level of credence we lend to a proposition is influenced by our point of view, is a small one.

    It’s the finale of the next series of Love/Hate. The new villain “Bo” Baudrillard wrote it in Nidge’s blood.

    It’s bound to divide viewers.

    But there is such a thing as the half life of facts, although within a few years that will probably prove itself to be untrue?

    1. Really?

      Eh have you googled the half life of facts? It has been totally discredited since. Seems it never really happens.

        Exactly, it is turning into a self propelling infinite loop of disinformation. I just made that up but It may be correct in 10 years or incorrect if it is correct now or just bollocks wither way.

    truth = facts from the first person’s perspective
    history = facts from the point of view of the victor
    Science = facts that have been proven to be true under certain certain circumstances. Or things that have yet to be proven false.

    The word fact is derived from Latin meaning: factum: “a thing done or performed”.

    The only fact is that nothing is absolute..
