All this is a rehash of the all truth is subjective argument. Science and logic accept this even if the minions don't know it. The dialectic and analytic are two means to bring about a semblance of objective truth, which, in spite of adamant contentions to the contrary in the just what does 2+2 equal debate, will always be a leap of faith. The subtle difference being that when all individuals have rehashed 2+2 equaling something other than 4, and it always ends up equaling 4 time after time, over time, eventually we can all agree that 2+2=4 as an absolute.

In areas where verifiable data cannot be replicated by others to follow this same process, the level of subjectivity distances itself too far from objectivity. Yes, Virginia, everything is a leap of faith, but how and where we choose to make that leap is very, very different.
