A “new” insight . . . ?

I’ve written before about my personal belief that no particular group has a monopoly on “the truth”. In fact, the way I see it, truth is universal, and belongs freely to all.

Well, I had another thought about that just moments ago while I was brewing some coffee.

It’s a “flip-side” of the coin sort of thing. Here it goes:

If it isn’t a universal truth, or nearly universal, it probably isn’t true.

The primary reason for my including the phrase “or nearly universal” is because of the maxim that there is an exception to every rule.

Still, I’d like to know your thoughts on this. All comments are read and appreciated.
