Lying

Synonyms:
Using falsehoods
Producing misleading statements
Telling lies
Telling falsehoods
Description:
Making a false statement intentionally.
Implementation:
A university study found that the most convincing liars were the same people who emerged as the leaders of a group during a "staged" crisis, or in the case of children, in play groups. This implies that the same psychological skills that give leaders great self-control and authority in times of crisis also make them skilful liars.
Claim:
1. Look at lovers. The sooner they confess to each other, the sooner they lie (Rainer Maria Rilke).

2. Tell a lie loud enough and long enough and people will believe it (Adolph Hitler).

3. The men American people admire most extravagantly are the most daring liars; the men they detest most violently are those who try and tell them the truth. (H L Mencken).

Counter Claim:
If discovered most unverifiable statements will be assumed to be false.
