The truth, the whole truth, and anything but the truth?

You hear many words that say this is the truth.

Whose words are you supposed to believe?

I misquoted the subheading for a reason.

It appears today the people in our society are hearing anything but the truth. Are you wondering why?

Throughout history, people relied on the truth of the information received to make decisions in their lives. As we look back, have we been told the truth?

Today we rely on the media and our elected representatives to provide us with our information. Lying is nothing new to our species. We have been lying since the time of Adam and Eve. Then they were punished for it. They were vanquished from the Garden of Eden.

We fast forward to today, those culpable for lying are not punished but rewarded for it.

How has this affected our lives?

After thousands of years of lies, what are the results?

What is true

Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.
