Truth is objective. For example how do you really know the color of your shirt. (This goes back to phylosophy class) I can question everything about you write now. Facts rely on the burden of individuals, community, society, whatever.. same with truth.
In most Afrikan thought, the only way something is fact is if you see it directly or it comes from a very reliable source (person) from which the community has established a level of respect and trust in.
Facts that derive from say a book are considered beliefs, for there is know way to determine how reliable the source is..

Prove to me, there was a man named "Jesus" that walked the earth died, resurrected himself walked around, then flew to heaven..
