    Lying is a tool and a fact of life whether it's right or wrong.

    However as we are in a world of lies or more accurately "perversions of the truth" then honesty carries a whole lot more bang for it's buck.

    So lying isn't "wrong" and it isn't "right" but quite often it's just plain inefficient.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Lying is a sin. You will suffer. Dei iudicium.

    Doesn't make it any less disgusting just because there is a favorable outcome.

    What constitutes lying exactly? What if you tell someone the truth, but as a result of a misunderstanding they interpret it wrongly and end up believing something that isn't true? Isn't that just as bad?

    Lying is a willful attempt to make other people believe false information in order to influence their opinions, behaviors, or decisions.

    Sure, you shouldn't lie to people, but some people seriously don't want to know the truth or can't handle it without getting all hurt and throwing a fit. It's not my fault if I have to lie to someone because they will freak out if they hear the truth. So I would say it is not my responsibility to tell the truth if doing so will put me or someone else in danger. Don't want to be lied to? Don't act in such a way that makes people feel as if they have to lie to you. Or develop a good BS detector. Either one.

    If a friend lied to prevent a psychopath from killing you, would you actually chastise her in disgust?
