It is not surprising that many people see facts and truths as synonyms. It reminds me of someone who once said, "If a person's character was to walk past their reputation, they would probably not recognize one another."
William Faulkner once stated, "Facts and truths don't have much to do with each other."
Facts are two dimensional, while truths are a deeper 3 dimensional measurement of what is or has happened.
A fact is like looking through a key hole and seeing a painting hanging on the wall inside. Facts are finite and can be linked together to create a totally false impression. On the other hand, truth can not be manipulated in such a way.
Beware of the person presenting only facts. They are probably trying to sell you something.
