Question:

Will the world would be a better place if people lost the ability to lie.?

well, just a random question while watching an episode of SPN.

If everybody told the truth starting tomorrow, many relationships would fall apart, I'm not just talking about love relationships here. Being too honest would result others to be kicked out of the house... or other things. But sooner or later, we'll end up adapting to it...

One of the major reasons when people lie, is if they do something wrong. If people stop doing the wrong thing, then there's no need to lie. Simples.

If we had the ability not to lie, then the world might be a better place.

I think It depends where you live aswell. Here's some scenerios:
1) A poor homeless man steals bread (for his family) in a place where they would cut your hand off as a punishment. If they ask him if he stole it and couldn't lie, because of this ability, his hand is gonna go bye bye. This would be bad if fate dictated that he could actually get away with it if he had no 'ability not to lie'.

2) You're a gay guy, in a country where they do not tolerate gays, you're screwed. You could tell me that "ooh if everyone came out the country would accept it" bullshit. If that happend in Uganda, I bet they'd be exiled/oppressed etc.

In some ways yes... in others no.

For example, few people would do things like murder because if they were questioned they'd be unable to deny it.

However as some people have said there are things that are illegal that to us are occasionally morally not wrong. Like the man stealing bread to feed his children.

As with many things, this is certainly not a black and white issue.

Good and evil has to balance out like the truth and lies. Without one the other one will get out of control and we could see the end coming soon. I read to many superhero comics...

Sometimes, you have to tell a lie. Deception is a powerful tool.

Right on. I couldn't agree with you more.

Humanity as a whole can't handle 'truth', which is why we use lies to deceive ourselves and others for satisfaction.I don't care about the truth as much as I do about myself, and that's all I really have to say.

I'm sure it wouldn't be pleasant at first but,in the long run ( after the bloodshed and carnage ) it's likely to get better.

This is probably a likely scenario

"Hey how do I look?"

"Awful, you look fat"

"I HATE you"
