I think this makes you a relativist. Especially where you say that the stripes blur together as they get further away. And also (but less certainly) where you say that neither you nor anyone else can find the truth.
I don't see how an intelligent person can see that other intelligent people have argued the toss about things since the dawn of time and got it so wrong (whilst trying so hard to get it right) and not be a relativist. Unless one is a positivist, in which case there's no point in having the arguments about it all.

By recognising that some people have got it more wrong than others.
You're still wasting your time, though.
