True or False? If x is the year the Declaration of Independence was signed, then x is 1776.
Does a counterexample exist? Could it have been signed in a different year.
The Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776.
If you are looking for nitpicking.....whose calendar ?.....whose Declaration of Independence ?
The philosophical point is that "truth" is "what works" (pragmatism)...social or paradigmatic context is always a factor. Disembodied "atomic" statements are contrived (Wittgenstein...."meaning is usage").
