in evolutionary terms, I would say that truth is a belief hardcoded by natural

This is self-defeating or circular. You need the "truth" of natural selection to make sense of it.

That seems to confound "truth" and "existence". There are some facts that make the theory of natural selection true (if it is true). Those facts may include hardwired beliefs in human brains and then they exist whether there is a theory that expresses them or not. It's not circular if it is grounded in facts.
