Abstract: I wish to begin with stating the Platonic notions of Truth and Goodness (Kraut, 2004). By the Platonic notion I understand that notions, such as 'truth' and 'goodness' are Absolute. Should the whole human race cease to exist, these ideals would still persevere. I would also like to show my disagreement with the notion that science! is the only means of acquiring truth. Moreover, I wish to preemptively reject the idea that being labelled a Platonist is somehow a detriment to the argument presented. Without this idea of Absolute, there is nothing stopping us form spiraling into relativism, where nothing is true and nothing is false. Thus, this argument is a two pronged attack against relativist philosophy and scientific dogmatism.
