Does truth change with time or is it our conception of time that changes? 11.30am is true at one moment but not true 10 mins later (read on)?

At 11.30am, the claim that it’s 11.40am isn’t true, right? It’s 11.30am - that claim is true. In ten minutes, the old and true claim that it’s 11.30am is now no longer true. It’s 11.40am. The truth isn’t changing though, it’s our conception of ‘now’ that changes from 11.30am to 11.40am.

Update:

Anonymous, surely it’s not the truth that changes but our interpretation of it that gets updated to align with reality

    The truth has changed with time. Some truths are changeable over time, and some are not. Truth is often defined as "a verified or indisputable fact". Facts in a fluid and and ever-changing universe can change. It's that simple and it's beyond argument. Let go of your false beliefs and arguments that truth cannot change.

    EDIT: Surely not. Yes, our perceptions can also change, but you're committing the red-herring fallacy here in trying to protect your position..
