Default Is it morally correct to lie?

What are your guys thoughts on this. Is it ever ok to lie? Sometimes, if so then when? Or is it never.

Can anyone make a general statement when its ok to lie and when its not?

Ok as in legally OK or some plastic ideal that society has invented?

If it doesn't put me in jail I'm fine with it (so even if it's illegal, if I know I will get away with it it's fine).

What, is God going to throw lightning bolts at me? lol

No, it's not okay to intentionally hurt someone through deceit. Anybody proclaiming to be remorseless and guilt-free despite deliberately doing wrong to someone, even if that action wasn't physical, is lying. Either to everybody else or to themselves.

White or noble lies are technically different in their intent, but an argument can still be made against them as well.

Morals are socially fabricated. If you don't feel bad about lying then it's not wrong. If you do feel bad then to you it is wrong....TO YOU.

If someone is trying to tell you it's wrong when you don't feel it is, then **** them. Ask them why it's wrong. They will say something stupid such as "It just is man. Gosh."

I'm not really talking about me personally. I'm just talking in general. What do you think the truth is? Is it ok to lie or not?

In general morals are bull****. In general you do what you feel is right. In general no one can tell you what is right.

That's what I'm saying generally speaking.


Hence why I said the only time I'd really care about lying is if it inconvenienced me such as sending me to prison.

It's not up to you. Something is wrong when it hurts someone; that's all there is to it. It's not up to the liar, it's up to the person being lied to. If it hurts them, it's wrong.

Why is it wrong? Give me a mature answer. Not a one liner.

Default Re: Is it morally correct to lie?

I think the main time it is appropriate to lie is when you are protecting someones mental or physical well being.


This would be things like telling your mom that her new haircut looks nice even though it looks like garbage. Or telling a disgruntled bridge jumper that they have plenty of reasons to live even if they really don't
