On Facts and Opinion

QUESTION: Sir John, what can you say about this, "He who dishonors himself [by lying about his opinions] for the sake of being honored by others will find that two mistakes have been made -- one by himself, and the other, by the people." by Robert Green Ingersoll?

ANSWER: Opinion is different from Fact. Opinions are only good at the time it is executed. When information change through time and space, opinions may change in an unlimited proportion. On the other hand, a fact constant . There is no lying on Opinion. There is only lying of Facts that could be a result of deliberate misrepresentation or just an honest mistake due to lack of information.
