Ok! So in general lies are bad, however, if it's to protect someone in MORAL DANGER (not just to hurt feelings) yes it is ok. Lying can also be used to not cause panic, or protect yourself.

As long as you don't have bad intentions.

Unless the lie keeps you safe (like lying about your phone number) I don't think it would be good.

Sometimes, lying can be acceptable. For example, lying to get out of dying or getting robbed, or lying to make someone feel better. For example: "is your team winning?" "Uh...yes."

NO. White lies should not be a thing. If you need to lie in this world to protect someone that is okay...But only because this world is completely messed up. In theory, if someone gets hurt by the truth it is their fault. If you have to lie to survive, you are justified. But that is only because this world is corrupt.

Lie to save yourself ok.
Lies to stop scientific research and human's knowledge not ok!
Even if the universe lies 10000000000000000000000000x more than we do.

Lying is both a necessary evil...but also not good to practice....White lies can be like putting a bandage on a deep gash...."It'll be fine" are what come first...but once they find out...it's like seeing a piece of you that was recently slashed at with a precision blade, unfelt until actually seen...White lies depend on the situation...with someone on the verge of suicide...a white lie may save their life...but simply saying one to make someone feel better may not be the best See More▼
