To believe an untruth is to believe a lie. But what if the untruth is truthful in that you believe it to be the actual truth, and reject the actual truth? Does the untruth become a truth or are you just lying to yourself?

To believe in something you cannot see is to have faith. Are you lying to yourself by making up signs that aren't there or are the signs true? Do you believe an untruth just to give your life meaning or is it actually there?

To believe a euphemism is to believe a lie. Candy is not still sweet if it is bitter and flavorless on the inside. Instead, give me reality. Give me the truth, not a lie. For it is better to die because of a truth than to live illusioned.
