Truth v stories about truth

Many people confuse stories about truth with truth, itself.

But what is truth?
Truth is "what is".

How do we know "what is"?

Through the senses we gain a glimpse of the appearance of "what is" but "what is" changes every moment and the truth is: we don't know if the appearance of what is is actually "what is"!

So stories about "what is" invented by the various religions, science, etc. are just that:  stories.  Some may point towards some kind of "sensed truth" or "thought truth" but they still remain only stories and not truth (i.e. what is), itself!
