There's a correct time and place for everything which, is about the only qualifier I can add off the top of my head.

And he who bellows out opinions, hearsay, and prejudices as if they were truth itself is a pain in the ass. ;-)

Yes Archer ! I love it!
 -- Me Again
 
And dead in some situations.

I would agree with Mike. There is a time and place for everything.

Truth needs no memory, no law, and no religion – it is the one great key to happiness. It stands alone, naked and unadulterated.

Copernicus and Galileo belted out the truth so where did it get them. Galileo recanted so that he could have a decent life. A time and place for everything and sometimes subjectivity must at least temporarily trump objectivity.
 -- Waffler, Smith, Arkansas
 
Spoken like a true coward, Waffler. One cannot know Truth, Love, or Liberty without Courage. I like what RBESRQ said.

You are as usual Archer acting like a childish idiot. None other than Camus (you I am sure never heard of him) said that Galileo was correct to recant the truth so that he and his family could have a decent life in the times in which he lived. It is simply an example of what others have said here (re Mike and Warren) about a time and place for everything. Some people and I especially think of you are never prepared for TRUTH so you act like an idiot and call people names.
 -- Waffler, Smith, Arkansas
 
RBESRQ, said very well.
 -- Mike, Norwalk
 
Being an accomplice to forgers (the Federal Reserve) and liars (Congress) has not given us a decent life -- it has made slaves of us all. The truth is the truth whether we like it or not. Galileo told the truth -- recanting it did not change the truth, it only prolonged the lies of the Church. Waffler's comments are typical of his sychophantic delusions -- in other words, if reality gets too tough to face, stick with a nice fantasy and live comfortably, don't challenge unlawful authority, don't argue with your masters, etc. That is the mentality of a house slave. Camus said: "Nothing is more despicable than respect based on fear," so I doubt Waffler's paraphrasing of him.

Archer's arrow is true and straight. Though I don't fault Galileo for saving his / his family's hide. And I commend the courage of the Founders for risking everything.
 -- Filby, Washington, DC
 
Few bother to learn truth, it seems as though the less a person knows about a subject, the more certain that person is that his or her view on the subject is correct. Too bad, I agree with Archer
