I think you re wrong. It may not be clear what is the best decision in your case, but i can construct a case where telling and believing false information is clearly beneficial.

For example:
you live on an island in extremely religious tribe where they re killing everyone who doesnt believe flying spaghetti monster(fsm). You re unable to escape and they test everyone with lie detector, so lying is inefficient Tongue. You have 2 options:
1. you dont believe in fsm and they kill you
2. you believe in fsm and continue to live a reasonably happy life, moreover you re awarded with lots of money, food and women, because you have the biggest dick in the tribe which makes you a son fsm according to their beliefs Bowing

So unless you re suicidal second option looks far better. Consider

Trolls are holy race. Eduard Khil is our god.
