I must know what the masses think.

Nah, that's ridiculous. If you follow that train of thought, it would mean that when you tell your children fairy tales, you're lying to them.

Or when they bring home their first 'drawing' or they pick a flower for you but it's really just a dandelion and you have to act like it's the most beautiful thing ever.

..and the parent is indeed acting the part of 'pleased patron of the arts' when they gush over their kid's 'work of art'.

When my son, at three years old, brought me a broken bit of plastic, it was the most beautiful thing ever because he told me it was green. I kept it for the next 13 years.

me too.

I just answered this question as no. Because neither I nor CD as far as I've read said that it is the same thing. Just like a thumb is a finger, but it is not the same as a finger.

I dom't profess to follow a silly book... and then try to maniputate its text to suit myself.

A large part of why it has become so silly.

You don't profess to follow anything. I wonder what that does make you?

Such self loathing. Have you thought about seeing someone about that

When the person at Starbucks smiles and says, "Have a great day!" Are they lying or acting or both or neither?

Percieved standards? What thw fact that I had Christmas dinner with my sister is a percieved standard now?

No Dacash you are just a nasty little c*nt who uses the internet to be a c*nt.

Well, lying is definitely a form of acting, but acting is not necessarily lying. After all, if you're in a movie about an historical figure such as George Washington, you're not going around saying actually ARE George Washington. You're just portraying him. The credits even show "George Washington played by......"
4 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 1/15/17 - 8:58:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
If the actor says "I am George Washington", they're not telling the truth. Can a statement be neither truth nor lie? Does the act of recitation remove it from such categories?

I guess to answer the first question, a statement in a vacuum such as "This dog is red" without any specification as to what dog is being referenced is neither truth nor lie. But then is it a statement if it doesn't actually have any meaning?
