Seek_Truth I really think that British writer and apologist G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936) could look into the future when he said the following:

Fallacies do not cease to be fallacies because they become fashions.

Amazing how many think truth is determined by popular vote or what popular culture seems to think.  That truth is determined by what feels good and is convenient.  The prophet Isaiah gives a stern warning for those who are tempted to view truth in this way, and disdain what is right:

Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter!
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
and shrewd in their own sight! (Isaiah 5:20-21, ESV)
