We can elaborate on the question of "what is truth?" but we intuitively know what truth is even if it cannot be defined from the vantage point of an outside of reality.

I'm not sure that's true. It seems like a huge assumption on your part.

Yes, I should have said intuitively we "think" we know what truth is... :clap:

You mean you should have said intuitively YOU "think" you know what truth is.

I don't claim to know, intuitively or otherwise.

Many people intuitively think they know what truth is, but don't make claims. You don't claim anything but you love to argue because you feel that I am doing something you don't like otherwise you would not be making judgments. So you are assuming some sort of default intuitive knowledge of truth that places you on the moral high ground, yes.

What am I assuming and where does morality enter into it?

You are assuming that you know the truth when you tell someone else they are wrong. You have told me directly and through implication that you think my statements are wrong many times. YOU are intuitively assuming you know what IS true.

Your brain must really be fried. You and at1with0 are real drug-heads.

Questioning ideas is not equivalent to assuming their truth or falsehood.

You have intuition and you assume correctness, wrongness, rightness, etc.

You are also trolling now... :x
