How can you know when someone is telling you the truth?

Good Day World?

How can you know when someone is telling you the truth?

Do you have a built-in sh**t- meter? Can you read body language and detect a liar?Are you psychic? Do you research everything you read to verify facts?

I’m curious.

These days, I don’t know who to believe. When it comes to watching/reading the news I often suspect I’m not getting the whole story – or someone (world figure, ect) is out-right lying like a rug!

An example:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called for the rejection of the framework of a multi-country deal that with Iran that seeks to limit the country's nuclear capability.

He claims the current plan "leaves the preeminent terrorist state of our time with a vast nuclear infrastructure."

Is that true? Does Netanyahu know something the US doesn’t? I wouldn’t be surprised. Israel’s spy system is superb.

On the other hand, there’s reason to doubt Netanyahu’s claims. The man will say anything to see the US back off from any kind of deal with Iran – their hated enemy.

When you infuse politics into the media mess, truth is one of the first victims. So what are we left with in the pursuit of truth?

Good question.

Take everything with a grain of salt for starters. After that, just try to use common sense whenever possible. That’s not as easy as it sounds.

It also really helps if you can separate yourself from political parties and allow yourself to remain open to the truth.

Independent thought is rapidly diminishing in this sound-byte age, but if your not afraid to question/research issues in depth, chances are you’ll get closer to the truth than you are now.

Time for me to walk on down the road…
