Truth is in itself a lie, as a lie is itself a truth

"Truth is in itself a lie, as a lie is itself a truth."           Goldstein

From the scriptures of the Bible, Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6, NIV)

He later on says, "Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." (John 8:32, NIV)

One thing stands out of all the words in the Bible, the Truth. On one instance, Pilate the great roman leader at the time questioned this man, Jesus, "What is truth?" And Jesus said no word about that.

The world is a mystery, the heavens, planets, all that still unknown and yet man claims great understanding of so much through his numerous research and exploration activities, all which may be a hoax.

What if everything we know is a lie? What if all we believe in, including religion and philosophy, were made up to fool man and have a few control over the rest of the world? What if science, mathematics, economics are something that blinds man's true self into believing something he has no idea of? Just like horoscopes and the numerous wizards, it may all be a big lie.

But man has no interest in truth whatsoever.

If one lies to save his family, friends, jobs, war, etc, is it still considered a lie? Telling the truth may cause more harm than good. So in other words, it is actually truthful to lie on certain circumstances, depending on what you are trying to save.

Truth = Lie
Lie = Truth

If we have a mathematical equation explaining the scenarios above, we will realize eventually that the truth that this man Jesus, talked about, was actually a lie that was told at the time, but man's shallow understanding of the two makes him rigid to know the difference. 

The terms truth and lie, whether interpreted according to what we believe in or influenced by, or what we think we know, we are wrong. We only think we know if we believe what we know which may not be true or a lie, but a feeling we have on ourselves. The greatest mistake we make is to judge people according to our standards, that may and will never apply to them. 

If man understood that simple fact, that our truth and lie are only based on what we believe in, and not the general accepted truth and lie, we will always be wrong. However, we as men can never have one universal truth, and that is what makes everything we know, believe in, study, have faith in, trust so much the greatest lie that men will never accept or understand.
