Truth and Babylon
Lying, Path the Truth, and By the Waters of Babylon
Description: Lying is a hot topic in morality, for we are not suppose to lie, but are there not times we actually should lie? In the PowerPoint you read three weeks ago, I had a slide with the different types of lying; in that slide I had the contention that belief without proof is actually worse than lying, because someone who believes without proof is saying truth has no value. The issue is complex. Last month, I was talking to some students about the UFOs over North Texas, and as I spoke to the people I became convinced that if the govt. knows what is going on with UFOs they should hide it from the people.
