Hey, you mentioned the pure truth and that we perhaps have no access to it. it seems to be right. if there is any pure truth it should be outside this reality which we face daily. the list of theories and the fact that they seem to fail in their claims to reveal the truth just proves it.
therefore, if the pure truth is outside this reality, then all other truthes (and there are many of them -- for example that is true that i have got brown eyes, or that is true that the computer screen has a shape of a 'square' and so on), so all other truthes are just relative. therefore, i would defend relativism rather then determinism.
the point is that it all depends even when we come to a bigger scale of discussing life and death issues. isnt; it so?
