How do we know this then, that the fact of something past is always
To be sure of a doubt such as that I'd have to know the truth of the past in order to compare it with my own recollection of it, in which case on which basis am I to trust my version as opposed to yours or his?
It was always rather self evident to me anyway that the present is always changing, so how come then that the past would rather be fixed, forever unchanged? Seems unfair to me, for the past to be so dead and done.
As I have opined before, if there is such a thing as free will, then there is no such thing as a fixed, pre determined reality. Logically there would rather be an infinite number of possible realities, and therefore an infinite number of previous realities also to be taken into consideration, for free will is the mother of perception, hence the invention of reality, just as much as determinisim is the deaf dumb and blind bastard son of it.
And before some mother ****** brother of a straw man attempts to announce as if on my behalf that this is somehow a "belief" of mine, allow me please to declare in advance that it is no such thing. My conclusion is rationally arrived at, according to the best available information
, the modern alternatives to truth
, to be preferred if only because of their improved feasibility.
Information permits me at least to calculate a probablity. Truth and belief were never nearly so generous.

Guys go philosphical when some mean bitch gets the better of them. That is the way of it. C'est la vie.
