Yet on the other thread, the discussion is a long mathmatical or philisophical exchange where, hypothetical senerios, I was told I didn't belong. (not by you by the way).
We have many uses and meanings to that word truth. Truth tables in Math I have zero understanding of. Testifying the truth, whole truth, and nothing but the truth, Truth in philosophy, Truth as in lying, fiction vs. non-fiction in writing, sayings like "the moment of truth", or this one "The truth shall set you free", may have many meaning for many people.

I am not free because of truth, in fact I'm closer to being a slave to truth than a free man because of truth. For example, suppose I have $100 in my bank account and I deposit $100. I am a slave to the fact that the bank will not let me withdraw $10,000; or if slavery is too hyperbolic for your tastes, then one might say I am bound by the truth.
