it's a socially-negotiated construct.
Truth is based on a consensus. If we all agree it's true, then it's true. Truth is malleable and can be changed as the consensus changes.
So, I agree with "socially-negotiated construct".
Not really. Earth flat, existence of ghouls, vampires, witches, sorcerors, wizards, and so on.. lots of people can agree that lots of stuff is true without it having any basis in reality. So, it's true and untrue at the same time, perhaps.
