No matter who you are. No matter what walk of life you are coming from or going on. No matter what particular philosophy you hold to, there are certain truths that apply to all of us. I will boldly say that universal truths can also be understood as absolute truths.
Now I know the moment most read my declarative statement, individualized personal truth meters are likely to start pinging. The reason why is because societal thinking has significantly changed over the last few generations. But you can relax and read on. This is not a morality blog (though I do have strong moral opinions). Nor is it a stand on any one particular philosophical belief system (I do have my favorites). The kind of universal truths I am talking about are laws that are stitched into the fabric of the universe. These are truths that most people accept and rely on to explain the stuff of life with (with some variance).
