Fortunately, truth is not critical and even acts as a barrier to knowledge.  Science doesn't deal in truth, but rather in probabilities.  Truth is the domain of theism where truth is used as evidence of the unknowable and the unseen.  It's the pursuit of fools.

In scientific realism, an offshoot of Platonism ... eggheads are discovering another world, thru their minds.  Originally promulgated by Pythagoras and his secret society, in regards to mathematics ... Plato extended this idea to the rest of reality.  Thus the invention of "not a true Scotsman".  The only true Scotsman is the one on the etherial Platonic plane of reality.

Science is empirically driven development of better questions, not better answers.  In that sense, it doesn't see the truth, it seeks to suppress know it all gullibility.  At least per Thomas Kuhn and Karl Popper.

Your taste in beer...or rather, lack thereof, should suffice to conclude that your opinion on anything...from acne to zinx oxide is irrelevent.

You LIKE any N/A beer?  Please tell me which one.

Well, you might be surprised.  Some of the world's best IPAs are coming from the US these days.  And some serious craft lagers, too.  But if you mean that crap in cans.  NO!
