Jean de la Bruyére (1645-1696) once said: ¿The exact contrary of what is generally believed is often the truth.¿ Or, as Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, or any of the soft-boiled but intelligent detectives of fiction would say, ¿Nothing is what it seems to be.¿ This bit of wisdom means there are 'facts¿ out there that people implicitly accept as true but are really false. However you may call them¿fallacies, errors or disinformation¿Untruths And Nothing But aims to debunk a few and then some using artful vignettes, puns and cartoon imagery as a fun way of discovering the truth.
