Information which has been decisively proven to be accurate. Just because something suggests it is so, does not mean that it is true.

An implication is not a fact. If something is based on facts it is not frivolous and cannot be disputed. The facts that are familiar to most people are considered part of common knowledge.

Factual data can be misleading because of unknown information, therefore much undiscovered knowledge remains. It is possible that important facts may remain unknown until sometime in the future and that some things may never be known.
