What is truth ? There are many definitions of truth  


I like Whitehead's, which describes contemporary politics: 

Alfred North Whitehead, a British mathematician who became an  
American philosopher[citation needed], said:  

"There are no whole truths; all truths are half-truths.  
It is trying to treat them as whole truths that play the devil". 

The logical progression or connection of this line of thought is to  
conclude that truth can lie, since half-truths are deceptive and 
may lead to a false conclusion. 

For example, half of the truth is that liberalism will surely create a better 
The other half is: But the liberals will drive us to bankruptcy.
