In his prior role as a political satirist on The Comedy Channel, Colbert coined the term Wikiality. A “wiki” is a process or document on the Web that anyone can add to or modify. And if enough users agree, it becomes “true.” Wikiality, then, is “reality as determined by a majority vote,” as when astronomers recently voted Pluto off their list of planets.
Colbert also has introduced another term to our modern culture, Truthiness. He describes it this way: “Truthiness is what you want to be true, as opposed to what the facts support. Truthiness is a truth larger than the facts which comprise it—if you cared about facts, which you don’t, if you care about truthiness!”
Taking “Truthiness” into a world of “Wikiality” allows a new theory of truth to insert itself into the way we view life. Truth becomes what the majority determine to believe it to be. With this kind of democratization of knowledge comes the democratization of truth! Fifty-one percent becomes the final arbiter of reality.
A Biblical worldview holds to absolute, objective truth. It doesn’t change. It is theocratic and not democratic.
Remember that the next time your friends question the Bible’s view of which sexual practices may be sinful or your employer wants you to welcome someone who is biologically different from you to use your gendered restroom.
