Lying and the Path to Truth

Lying is a fairly hot topic in morality, for we are not suppose to lie, but are there not times when doing the moral thing means we actually should lie? In the PowerPoint you read on philosophy and informal fallacies, I had a slide with the different types of lying; in that slide I had the contention that belief without proof is actually worse than lying, because someone who believes without proof is saying truth has no value.
The issue is complex: Last month, I was talking to some students about the UFOs over North Texas, and as I spoke to the people… I became convinced that if the Federal Government knows what is going on with UFOs, our Government should hide it from the people… .
