How do you decide if someone is lying to you or not?


What is your criteria for determining truth from fiction? Do you do research? Do you just accept opinions as facts? Do you know the difference between an opinion and a fact? What is a fact that you accept? What do some people say is a fact when it really isn't? If you know someone is lying to you, what do you do about it? What do some people say is a lie when it is really the truth? Why do you believe some people even when most people agree that they are lying? Please do not go off topic, no hate speech, no name-calling, etcetera, etcetera...

    I truly worry about people that advocate torture. There is something very very wrong with them.

    Plus if a person changes the story all the time, that's a warning sign. Some people are compulsive liars and that is something they may not be able to help.
