    generally, yes.

    However there are certain times when a 'white lie' is required - like when children ask things they probably shouldn't lol.

    Yes I do-always.  Lying is unacceptable unless the situation is extreme, and someone would be injured because of the truth.

    Yes there is no miscommunication when being honest, people know where you stand and that they can depend on you for the truth

    I agree with the others - yes in most cases but sometimes it's more moral to lie (such as hiding people from genocide squads)

    Just make sure you good at it. Most people know when you are lying and don't press the fact because  it's not worth the effort to convince a person that the only person they are fooling are themselves.  But if caught with a lie by somebody who is carrying a gun - then well - you're toast also......
