How can I refute my colleague's claim that truth is relative?


Full Question

A colleague claims that all truth is relative. I believe that there are objective truths but am at a loss as to how to refute her.

Answer

If all truth is relative, then there is no objective truth and nothing can ever be posited as fact—including your colleague’s statement that truth is relative. Such a stance equals chaos and voids all logical communication.
