This question already has an answer here:
I have been starting back in school after a long hiatus. In one of my classes, a discussion of Truth began. The problem I have had is that no one seems to have a solid definition between the two. My earlier training and schooling left me with this definition, and I would like some feedback.
Fact - A point of data that can be directly qualified/quantified through confirmed, standardized measurement.
Truth - A point of data not directly qualified/quantified through confirmed, standardized measurement.
So fact would be that ice cream is cold, as we can place a measurement of the temperature. Ice cream being tasty would be truth, as it is impossible to accurately measure "tasty".
Please let me know your thoughts.
