Re: Nope, the truth is not relative

Neither is a statement of fact. A statement of fact would include whether by weight or by number of atoms.

Did anyone claim a statement of fact? All he said is that they are true statements. In the right context (like in answer to a question that defines the terms), they might also be statements of fact.

It's a long time since I sat exams, but I'm still plagued by this kind of ambiguity if I take a survey or go to a pub quiz.
