Mark Twain – Is Truth stranger than fiction?

Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn’t.

-Pudd’nhead Wilson’s New Calendar

Do you agree with the statement? Is the truth more strange than fiction? Why or why not?

I feel I comprehend this statement in a different light.  While it holds a lot of thought and meaning, I don’t necessarily think we know what is true.  There are diagnosis’s to mental problems, weird looks for people who believe in conspiracies, and disbelief when someone has a theory that doesn’t regulate to the norm, but do we actually know if someone is crazy?  Can we actually put all of our faith in evolution or that aliens are not real?
