What is truth?

This question stemmed from a discussion on the subjectivity with religious doctrines in religion. How do we know what 'truth' is? Is truth true because an individual believes it, is it relative or definite? This question can be extended past religion to let's say, academia, politics, law and morality.

    Nov 6 2012: From my point of view, all of us, we are relative, so we cannot know absolute truth.

    And no one lies, because each one tells its truth from itself. Therefore, all of us are right.
    • Nov 8 2012: Yes,I also think truth is a subjective thing.
