The Diamond Theory of Truth

“Legend says that when the stones
are brought together the diamonds
inside of them will glow.”

— Harrison Ford in
“Indiana Jones and the
Temple of Doom”

In today’s online New York Times:

(1) A review of pop-archaeology TV,
     “Digging for the Truth,”
(2) a Sunday news story,
     “Looking for the Lie,”
(3) and a profile,
     “Storyteller in the Family.”

From (1):
“The season premiere ‘Digging for the Truth: The Real Temple of Doom,’ showed Mr. Bernstein in South America, exploring tunnels….”
From (2):
“… scientists are building a cognitive theory of deception to show what lying looks like….”
From (3):
“I did feel one had to get not just the facts, but the emotional underpinnings.”
