Not to seem rude, but I will be critical of your statement.
You say none of this can be proven, which I am assuming you refer to my post about truth - obvious I know. So basically what your saying is that you can't know what truth is. Then you cant believe in anything with absolute certainty because it must be 100% true in order to foll under the category of truth, which is something you say we cant know. Hopefully, that is understandable, but that is the logical conclusion of what your saying.
However, and heres where I have contention with your response, is that you seem to know that "none" of this can be proven. None is a strong word, inferring no possible way - obvious I know. So you seem to know with absolute certainity that you cant know something to be true with absolute certainty, though you seem to believe that is true. So then what your saying is that you cant know truth, none of it can be proven, there are no absolutes to weight it against blablabla..... Therefore according to your logic, "there are no absolutes about truth," except that statemen which is an absolute and because you said it, I'm assuming you believe that to be true.
Do you see the flaw with your logic in that simple attempt of refutation? Whether you like it or not, that is the logical conclusion of what youre saying. And basically your statement is self-defeating, because you must truthfully know that none of this [truth talk] can be proven, meaning you cant truthfully know anything.....but somehow you know that.
