Can't one believe in truth yet also produce falsehood-- for security's sake? Churchill said words to the effect that in wartime lies are the bodyguard of truth. 
  There also exists an ongoing disagreement about what constitutes life; anti-abortionists are convinced fetuses are lives. 

          "I'm not a religious man, but I believe in love and life and laughter. I believe in beauty and truth and goodness, and I believe these things are worth protecting, even though neither I nor anyone else can prove it; at some point I, like any civilized man, must resort to belief in the absence of evidence; for people who don't believe in beauty produce ugliness; people who don't believe in truth produce falsehood; and people who don't believe in good produce evil."
