Most people think something is true if and only if the majority of people agree that it is true.
For instance if I say the walls are tan and three people tell me they aren't, then it is false to say 'the walls are tan'.
If I say the dog is in the room and the people all agree it is, then it is true that the dog is in the room.
So how can something be considered absolute truth if not everyone agrees that it is?

I do not believe humans (the vast majority) know absolute truth...our truths are perceived. Even in Science, Medicine, History "known truths" are constantly changing, evolving, expanding.
I believe absolute truth is saved for the truly enlightened (part of the reason I believe in reincarnation).

No, I believe absolute truth exist but as I said is reserved for the enlightened.
For a soul to become enlightened (in my opinion) it must be reincarnated and learn pre-determined lessons in life (though I do not think the order of learning is pre-determined).
I believe Ghandi and Buddha were enlightened....as well as others.
