    Precisely, but what happiness is to you isn't necessarily the same for everyone.

    When I hit my thumb with a hammer, my pain isn't the same as it is for everyone else.... but it's still pain.

    Yes, but you are talking about physical feelings and I'm talking about emotional feelings.

    Using your yardstick:

    Gravity: Opinion
    Newtonian Physics: Opinion
    Evolution: Opinion
    Big Bang: Opinion

    The list goes on.

    Both are subjective.

    The list goes on.
    Gravity: Both a theory and a law. The law of gravity defines that if an object is dropped on this planet, it will fall. Gravitational theory explains how and why it does this.

    Newtonian Physics: Same as above.

    Evolution: Theory

    Big Bang: Theory

    There's a 32 year trend with every year Republican happier than Democrat, but you want to claim it's because of who the president was at the time because during two of the four year Carter administration they were close. Do I have this right?

    Pain is not subjective. Degrees of pain vary, but pain is an absolute. Emotions are far more complex. What makes a person feel various emotions is subjective. Like I said, you can't compare physical pain and emotional pain because they are two very very different things.
