What is an Absolute Truth, and how many are there?  Can anyone name one?

Sounds very heavy and philosophical Eleanor.  Without looking it up I would say an absolute truth is something that is measureable by recognised branches of science/humanities and not subjective eg physics, chemistry, biology, maths and geography.   
Just my opinion of course but Jeremy Bamber is innocent and a couple from UK, unknown to T9, abducted Madeleine McCann - motive unknown.  Was J J murdered as a result of identifying as a goth? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QUvVdTlA23w&list=RDYpkv0HeUvTc&index=2  @ 22nd Aug '21.

Yes, it probably is a bit heavy.  I was actually thinking more about the difference between Truth and Opinion.  So many people confuse the two, including me on occasions.

The Sun will rise tomorrow.  At least, I hope so.

Being pedantic the sun doesn't rise, the earth rotates. The earth could be hit by a gamma ray burst or an extinction level event collision so the 'sun rising tomorrow' is not an absolute truth. The only absolute truth I can think of is death .... every living organism dies!

And Bamber is guilty of course!
