We would like to think of ourselves as objective and rational but I think most people choose what they want to believe based on who arouses their sympathy and/or antipathy or by which popular in group they wish to identify with.

Yeah Today For the First Day Ever

My Wife Left Her Fear Behind

In Her 'Fundamentalist' Upbringing

To Ask Me Why Does the Bible Say

God Protects Folks Who Believe In God

From Harm When Folks Who Believe in God

Are Clearly

Harmed

All Around

Every Day Who

Believe In God;

The Short Logical Answer is

Three Words: 'The Bible Lies';

Yet It's Also True That Sugar Pills

Work Somehow In The Emotions of Belief

And Underlying Subconscious Part of Our

Mind In Synergy of All Healing Neurochemicals

And Neurohormones Associated With Deep Emotions

of Faith And Belief That Actually Are Documented in the

Unexplained Files of Modern Medicine That Bring So-Called

Incurable Disease Into Remission; Yet That is only an Extreme

And Some Folks Are Able to Incorporate This Healing Force With

Lies of Sugar Pills as Big As The Story of A Little Brown Man Crucified

Over 2000 Years Ago, Who Never Wrote An Illiterate Word; Story Conveyed

By Innumerable Ghost Authors and Mistake And Change Making Copy Scribes

Over Centuries

Yet You See

Even That Lie

Works As People

Use The Name And Story

Of Jesus As A Sugar Pill

Lie That Brings Literal

Healing Force of Belief

And Faith Mingled With Love

And Hope That Does Bring Healing to

The Individual Who has the Ability to Empower

This Force Within of Belief; Not All People Will

Empower A Sugar Pill Lie This Way, Yet Some Do

And Science Does Show Sugar Pills And the Placebo
Effect Works Just As Well As the Nocebo Effect in Believing

Negative Stuff Happens With Negative Emotions And Suffering

Ill Consequences From That Associated With Disease And Disorder too

And True of Course Words And Actions Precipitated By Real Lies of Nocebo Negativity too...

In Other

Words,

Every Thing

In Life Doesn't

Have to Be the Truth

To Reap Amazing Rewards

That Come From the Power of

Real Emotions And Synergy of

Subconscious Effects That Come

From Sugar Coated Lies or Even Nocebo

Truths That Stink Like God Doesn't Care About

You No Different Than Nature too; True It Is Better

To Believe That Every Little Thing is Gonna Be Okay

Than the Sky is Falling, The Sky Is Falling, Democrats

Are Sacrificing Blood of Babies And all of what Nocebo Lies Bring too...

Glass OverFLoWinG

Baby Works

A Helluva

A lot Better

Than Seeing Life

Empty Bringing that

Belief to Self-Fulfilling

Prophecy As Science Damn
Sure Shows Nocebo Is as Real as Placebo;

Choose Your Poison or Pleasure of Lies Carefully Creatively Now...

As True Lies Become the Truth When The Essence Is Deeper Than Form...

Other Than That Perhaps A Better Question to Ask is Why Do Folks Lie...

Actually it is Considered A Normal Process of Behavioral Development

For Children Who Develop Verbal Techniques to Get A Better Survival Result in Life...

A Person

Who Gives

Their Life

For the Truth

Is Still Dead;

Yet On the Other

Hand the Truth

That A Lie Will Heal

As A Sugar Pill Is the Truth too...

In Other Words There are No Blacks
And Whites In Life, Yet There Are White and Black Lies...

Honey

You Will

Always Be

The Fairest of them

All And So Far the Mirror

Agrees With my 51 Year-old Wife Pictures Prove it too...

Yet True, The Most Important Part is The Essence of Beauty

That is Feeling; Truth Changes; Humans Also Evolve in One Lifetime too,

Where The Truth of Who They Were Before Becomes A Better Lie Now As Truth...

One of the Most Dangerous Things We Will Do In Life is BeLiEVE iN So-Called

Truths That

Come Before...

Giving

Up on

Making The

Truth A Lie And Improving
That Truth And Proving It is A Lie Now...

Not Much Different Than A Scientific Method of Art...

Anyway, Who Ever Comes Up With A Best Life Story Coming to Fruition Wins 'The Game'...

My Wife Will Always Be The Fairest Of Them All As She Truly Loves Me Like No One Else Does...

She Gives

Her Entire

Life to Take

Care of me

Now And

That's No Lie

i Already Have It all...

For She Gives This Beauty of Love to me...

How Do You Measure This As Truth or Lie: You Don't...

She's 'Looked The Same Way to me' for 31 Years of Marriage It's What Love Does... No Lie...

It Will Still Be to Her Advantage To Believe That God Will Protect Her From All Harm As She (God) Does too...

The Placebo

Effect Works

To Some Degree And More...

No Matter How Folks Label it Truth or Lie...

The Question Is How Far Will Humans Create This Potential...

i'll Do my Best to Answer
That Question Now And
Document my Science
of Life Art Project
As i go even further Now
Stronger And Smarter More
Loving Artistic Than Ever Before in

Human Potentials; The Stronger Part i Already Empirically Irrefutably Prove...

The Smarter Part, Depends on What Folks Are Able to Understand, Or Even 'See'...

Don't Believe in Couch Potato Averages; Science Proves Them True; Outliers Prove Them Lost Potential...

I've got a very simple starting point for this - predominantly 'social' creatures tune themselves, first and foremost, to local optimums and benefits, meaning 'Believing *what* will help me wring maximum benefit out of my environment?'.

The answer to that question is rarely truth and when it is it's less often than blind chance because power structures keep and maintain power by distorting truth and preferring to only pull out selected fragments of it when they can be weaponized.

A liar can mask his lie by the clothes he wears. A journalist or politician wearing classy/decent clothes will be able to spread a lie more easily without being noticed than a journalist or politician who spreads his lie in a t shirt. In many cases, his tie is an extremely suitable camouflage attribute.

Sometimes it's because the lies benefit their interests, like in cases where excited delirium is used to excuse murder.

good lies have some kernel of truth in them which is absent from the socially accepted and shared lie we call "the Truth". After all, conspiracies do exist. And a good conspiracy theory is often more straightforward than the truth, even if it is very convoluted - at least, you won't have to get a college degree for it.

The thing is most right wing conspiracy theories ascribe cartoonish and overly-elaborate motives to “the enemy”. Whatever “conspiracy theories” exist on the far left, they are at least straightforward.
