Truthiness

Speaking of truth, I thought this term was rather interesting:

«Truthiness is a “truth” that a person claims to know intuitively “from the gut” or because it “feels right” without regard to evidence, logic, intellectual examination, or facts.» [via wikipedia]

This happens to me all the time. I say a fact to someone and that person asks: How do you know it? I usually think for a while and I answer: I just do. There are facts one can’t prove but know they’re true…
