In light of the heated political discussions here these past days, I began to think about the philosophical question related to our ideas about and our sources of truth. When we were youngsters, our parents were our source of truth (at least until we found out about Santa and the Easter Bunny).
As an adult, how do you know what is true? Are there trusted sources you go to for knowledge or is it mostly your own internal logic? More specifically, what makes you so sure that what you are saying on here in the political debates is really correct?
