But in my experience and to my mind they ARE. They are MY personal facts. Maybe not yours. some of yours are not mine. Isn't that allowed ?


Personal facts aren't facts they are personal beliefs.


If it's something I have experienced it is a personal fact.



Yes it is. A personal fact, which, since it's personal to you, not me, is a personal belief not a fact.


I'm fine with that. To you it's my belief, to me, it's my fact.

Which is a misuse of language.


If you say so. Semantics again.

That's a bit rich coming from someone who's spent half the morning attempting to twist the meaning of the word "fact" to fit his personal beliefs system ;)


I'm not twisting anything. I just don't agree with you.

So if someone insists on the correct use of the word "fact", then they're playing semantics? Whereas if you insist that beliefs are facts, then that isn't semantics? Can't have it both ways.


You don't get it. If something happens in my own personal reality, genuine experiences, then to me they are personal facts.

Semantics ;)


Opinions :-)

Semantics again ;)

See how this works? If someone disagrees with you, it must be semantics ;)


It's a wavelength thing :-)

Let's try this again. If you experience something, it is a fact that you have experienced that thing. An interpretation of what that thing is is supposition - unless it can be proven, in which case it becomes a fact.


Some facts eg metaphysical etc cannot be proven within the limited boundaries of the current materialistic world view.

If something can't be proven, then it isn't a fact.


Again, within a limited perception this is still not necessarily the case.
