How can we find truth in a world of ambiguity?

When one thinks of truth, one relates the word with reality, something we think we know for certain exists only in one way. Therefore, if something is perceived as untruthful, it should not exist in the realm we refer to as real. People tend to have confirmatory bias, in which they assure that others agree with their preconceived judgement as to hinder any other ambiguous consideration. If we lose this habit of inductive reasoning, truth would become elusive, as people would be open to more meanings of the same thing. But as most people are reluctant to deny volatile facts, the most agreed-upon evidence becomes acknowledged as true. So in conclusion, truth can only be found in the subjectivity of others’ notions.
