WHAT IS A LIE:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lie


http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/lie


A lie is a false statement made with deliberate intent to deceive.
It requires that the speaker knew his statement was false. Simple mistakes
are not lies.

A lie must also be a statement of fact. Opinions are not statements of fact.

If I say:"You are a fool", that is an OPINION.

Compare that with this statement: "You served 3 years in prison", which is a statement of fact and may qualify as a lie if it is not true.

The present tense of the verbal Lay.

@33export,
That's about as funny as a screen door in a submarine.
