Why is this evidence being suppressed?
I can think of several different reasons this is being done. And I'd be interested to hear your thoughts about this. So why do you think it is being done?
In addition, regarding your subject title, I've heard it argued that the philosophical concept of Truth is not something that can be put into mere words. In the words of G.K. Chesterton,
"Every time one man says to another, 'Tell us plainly what you mean?' he is assuming the infallibility of language: that is to say, he is assuming that there is a perfect scheme of verbal expression for all the internal moods and meanings of men. Whenever a man says to another, 'Prove your case; defend your faith,' he is assuming the infallibility of language: that is to say, he is assuming that a man has a word for every reality in earth, or heaven, or hell. He knows that there are in the soul tints more bewildering, more numberless and more nameless than the colours of an autumn forest; he knows that there are abroad in the world and doing strange and terrible service in it crimes that have never been condemned and virtues that have never been christened. Yet he seriously believes that these things can every one of them, in all their tones and semi-tones, in all their blends and unions, be accurately represented by an arbitrary system of grunts and squeals."
Given the logic behind this idea, it can then be argued that the only two ways to convey Truth. The first is through the art of poetry. Through this art, one can symbolically convey this idea, but the understanding of Truth comes with some internal epiphany that cannot be expressed with mere words. Hence, the true purpose of all art. The second way to express Truth is through the science of mathematics. No matter what language one speaks, the arithmetic behind 1+1=2 will always be true. This also conveys the idea of symmetry. One side of the equation is symmetrical with the other (the equation part being the equals sign). And with the language of myth, the art of poetry and the science of mathematics are combined. And historically speaking, the first mythmakers were the Orphico-Pythagoreans who established the foundation for modern civilization in the West (although the Orphics tended to lean more toward poetry and the Pythagoreans toward mathematics). Even further, they both said that their wisdom and knowledge came from the 'Prisca Sapientae', the "Ancient Philosophy" or the "Original Wisdom", of which Plato said was “a gift of the gods to human beings, tossed down by some Prometheus together with the most brilliant fire. And the ancients, our superiors who dwelt nearer to the gods, have passed this word on to us.”
