    Second, it actually IS acceptable to lie to an enemy. We do it in warfare, it was approved in the Bible.... Rahab is a classic example.
    One might argue that it's not really a lie to lie to an enemy in war since there is no expectation of truth (by that token I suppose you could argue that there is no expectation of truth when conversing with a 'screwball'). Though I heard Christians argue many times that lying under any conditions is wrong in my Campus Crusade days.

    Depends on who's using them.

    It's still a lie to say a nonsensical statement with an intent to deceive.

    Yes you were. You were intending to deceive with your nonsensical statement. Just like one can lie by giving an answer which is true in technicality but false in spirit. E.g., if I drink the world's largest beer then honestly answer that I've only had "one beer" that day I'd still be lying since I'd be intending to deceive with my true answer.

    So was I trying to deceive you by telling the truth when I said I was lying? Or was I trying to deceive you by lying about lying, meaning I was telling the truth?
