    dome truth

    Does it have to do anything with the church thing? Is it similar to "sacred truth"? What would it mean "the dome truth"?

    Re: dome truth

    Are you sure it wasn't "home" instead of "dome"? "Home truth" is an idiom, "dome truth" isn't (to my knowledge and according to Google). What's the context?

    Yes. It was "the dome truth"?

    Get a grip, Ostap.

    You've been posting long enough to know that context involves giving us more than this to work on.

    Where did you read it for a start? Who wrote it? When?

    Could it be a typo for 'some truth' (d and s are adjacent on the keyboard)?

    The Truth Domes (not dome truth) will be a place, where millions of lives will be saved, set free, and delivered in the name of Jesus

    I don't know if it was extracted from an original english text but that's what we got to translate from out teacher.

    "There's dome truth in the idea that children who had a surfeit of happiness in the childhood emerge like stodgy puddings and fail to make a successof life."

    Re: dome truth

    Rover's probably right - it should be some truth. Typo

    I'd like to thank Rover and you sir for helping me out. I'd stayed up till 3 a.m. last night looking up in dictionaries but couldn't find any acceptable defenition. The thing is that nobody in our class realized that that was just a mistake
