Is Truth And Fact The Same Thing ?

Is There A Difference Between A Truth And A Fact?

Truth and Fact can not be classified as the same thing, to a certain point it almost look like the same thing but in actual term they don’t serve the same purpose, for instance I might decide to tell you about some certain occurrence about me which is actually the truth but it doesn’t mean what I told you is the fact, for people who enjoy playing the famous game Truth or Dare questions will understand what it actually mean to challenge someone to say the truth but it doesn’t really mean that the person have said the actual fact of the story.

Truth can be classified as a general accepted outcome or reasoning while the term fact is considered true which is well known by the world, for instance we all know that we have to board plane to fly in the air, it is an actual fact which is well known by the world as a whole, another instance is every country have president it is also a fact. When you see a girl the whole world recognized her as a girl it is a fact which is true. I might decide to say I finish for Harvard university friends and family know the truth deeply which is actually a fact to them but to distance friends or people who are just meeting me if they decide to believe me to them it is just a truth which they don’t know if it’s a fact or not.

A fact is more unless like a reality, which can never be disputed by any one, we all see the rain when it’s about to fall it can not be disputed, when you touch a fire we all know it will burn your finger it is actually a fact, when I say the fire will burn your finger then it is a fact which can also be considered as truth. Fact is something which is wide open for everyone to see without dispute while a truth is something that can not be acknowledged but has to be discovered or created, when I say God exist then we all know I am actually saying the truth because truly God exist but some people will still dispute so that can not be considered as a fact to some other people.

Truth is an actual effect of a certain matter which happens in front of you and when you have to explain the occurrence to some certain people they don’t really have the idea of what you are saying but they choose to believe your story because they believe in your words and they know you are saying the truth. Truth is tend to answer some question like Why, when and how while Facts don’t need to answer such question, like I said earlier Fact is what is very obvious to everyone around and they can truly see with their eyes without anyone having to describe, explain or convince them about it.
