At least, this is the truth as of the time at which I am writing this posting. Suggestions to changes to the truth can be made here.
(In no particular order)
1. Cigarettes are bad for you.
2. Men and Women are equal.
3. Global Warming is real, and (by the way) it’s all our fault.*
4. It’s not all relative.
Gin is better than Whiskey.Whiskey is better than Gin.
6. Intelligent Design is wrong.
7. Over consumption is a serious problem.
8. The Millenium Development Goals are worthy*.
9. Wilco is good, sometimes exceptional, but often inconsequential.
10. Shit happens (ditto for sex).
11. Creationism is silly. (also, see 6)
12. Sloths are not purple.
13. Science, for better or for worse, is all around.
This is all part of a web experiment that you can read about here... the idea is to get The Truth site to the top of the Google search for the word truth***. When I first read about this, it was at #11 and right now it's the 4th hit when you Google "truth." Care to play along at home? All you have to do is link the word truth to the site: http://www.scq.ubc.ca/?p=677.
Now, as for the truth itself, I have to say that I'm glad that u only requires that one be mostly in agreement with the truth. I'm down with #1-8, and with #10-13. I'm glad that they changed number 5 as I abhor gin****. But the one that I have a problem with is, obviously, #9. I was unfamiliar with Wilco, so, of course, I got my hands on some to check it out. And, alas, I find them neither "good" nor "exceptional"... but I can agree with the "inconsequential" part.

***I've used the word truth so many times in this posting it has ceased to look like a real word to me. Isn't that weird how that happens?
****Unless you are referring to the dog my family had when I was a baby who was named Gin (which one might believe by the capitalization of the word "Gin" in The Truth. I don't remember Gin, as she died when I was just a baby, but apparently she absolutely loved me, which means that she was clearly an intelligent dog. Why my parents, who are both teetotallers, named their dogs "Brandy" and "Gin," however, is one of life's great mysteries.
