There is a difference between truth which is based on facts and beliefs which are subjective. Believing something to be true does not change the facts.


No that isn't true. Logically and philosophically (both) provide for the concept that truth is only as good as the framework to which very, very limit constructs (arguments) are made. Without the acceptance, total unconditional acceptance (belief), the constructs do not stand.

However in the real world when a car hits you you are going to be in a world of hurt regardless of whether you accepted the reality of the car nor whether you or the car had the right of way.

Giuliani was true but only when one is in a philosophy classroom and with someone who actually understands the foundations of logic and philosophy (not sure he does.) It is pointless in the context in which he used it.
