OFFICIAL !! EVERYONE CHEAT AND LIE....EVEN CHRISTIANS !!!
[link to finance.yahoo.com]


If you're watching this right now, you're probably a liar — about something. It doesn't make you bad. It just makes you human. That's what Dan Ariely, behavioral economist at Duke University and author of the best-seller Predictably Irrational, argues in his new book The (Honest) Truth About Dishonesty: How We Lie to Everyone—Especially Ourselves.
In his book, Ariely describes a series of experiments and studies that undermine a core belief among economists and law enforcement about crime, bad behavior, and cheating. The system tends to believe that people make rational cost-benefit analyses about what they'll gain from outside-the-lines behavior and the potential consequences. And so it follows that the way to forestall bad behavior is to put tough punishments in place. Ariely says that's the wrong way to think about it. "Our behavior is driven by two opposing motivations. On the one hand, we want to view ourselves as honest, honorable people. . On the other hand, we want to benefit from cheating and get as much money as possible." Human behavior is the balance between those two forces.

Agreed. Money and religion are the root of all evil. We lie to get ahead in this world.
