Q&A: “Curt; Do You Have a Concise Definition for Testimonialism?”

Colloquially: “The completion of the scientific method for the purpose of the conduct of law”.

Testimonial Truth: Testimony (Speech) that is warrantied by the speaker through the performance of due diligence against imaginary content, error, bias, wishful thinking, suggestion, deception and fraud. The only truth that can exist is that which is spoken. We can never speak the perfect truth because we can never know if we possess it. The most perfect truth we can speak is that which we have performed due diligence, that we do not speak in falsehood: fraud.

Testimonialism: A set of tests of due diligence, the satisfaction of which allows us to warranty that to the best of our ability our speech (testimony) is free of the falsehoods: imaginary content, error, bias, wishful thinking, suggestion, deceit, and fraud.

Truth: That testimony we would give if we possessed perfect (complete) knowledge, perfect language, and an audience possessed of the same. And, at that point we speak a name, not a description. Everything has a true name. We seek that name. In seeking it we seek truth.
