Now, how does one find the magical evidence? You look for it of course! For my make cycle #2 for my English 1103 class I made a video of me and my friend Maria exploring the Discovery Place museum. The point of this project was to express the importance of adventure. Going out and observing the world for yourself fills the mind with the evidence you find, and in turn forms the truths specific to you. A great example in the video is the butterfly towards the end. The sign asks, "Is the butterfly blue?" We look at it and automatically establish that the truth is that the butterfly is in fact blue. But what happens when the light is turned on? By simply exploring the subject we soon find that the butterfly is actually a different color.
After learning a little of maps, I consider evidence as a map of sorts. This Is American Life brought the point that "maps have meaning because they filter out all the chaos in the world". This is why people can change what they hold as truth when provided with this all powerful evidence. Giving evidence is the equivalent of giving maps that filter out all other thoughts, theories, opinions, etc. and to lead to the truth. Just a little food for thought.

But in the end it is what we think that is most important to ourselves. I found in the Bible that it says "Sanctify them by your truth. Your word is truth." If religion isn't quite your thing, then consider this, Roger Ailes said "Truth is whatever people will believe." So, what is your truth, and can I see its map?
