"What is truth ?"

- Pontius Pilate [John, 18:38]

Facts, apparently, supported by truth, which makes them 'true facts'.

As distinct from the other sort of facts, being the untrue ones. :rolleyes:

"What is truth ?"

- Pontius Pilate [John, 18:38]

Going to the source, there is some following confusion between truth and belief [John 19].

34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.

35 And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe.

36 For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken.

37 And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.
