Difficult Definition of Truth

A conversation from Facebook wall: 

Me: Science is only tentative

Atheist: Wait what?

Me: Science is not a truth finding method.

Atheist: What is it then?

Atheist 2: Luke wouldn’t know, he is not interested in truth, that much is obvious.

Me: What is truth?

Atheist: Truth is that which is accordance with fact or reality.

Me : What is a fact?

Atheist: A fact is a thing that is known or proven to be true.

Me: So your definition of truth is: Truth is that which is in accordance with a thing that is known or proved to be true. Do you see the difficulty with your definition?

Atheist: There is little point in continuing a conversation with a pedantic, anti-science troll that just wants to play stupid.
