    no defence is not a good defence wen it comes to the truth in scriptures

    no defence would be that you have found yourself in error ,and this either humble en enriched the wise or hurts with a blow on the ego

    the first one comes closer the other one runs ,

    Ed, you bring up a good point.

    A popular example of that  type of question is, “are you still beating your wife?”

    If or since, you never beat your wife, answering either yes or no indicates that either you did or continue to do so.

    Either answer for you would be wrong, thus making honesty impossible.

    Hi Sog, No you’re wrong

    You are forgetting you are allowed to explain your answer.

    “No” I have never beat my wife

    This answer indicates you did not ask an informational based question

    To All,

    Loaded questions cannot be answered yes or no.

    Hi Sog,

    I was referring to more than a one part question,
    where one part is right and another part is wrong.
    these Questions need to be repackaged into one part

    Sog, taking ones words out of context and changing the intent is just as dishonest as the question you propose
