I hiding the truth a lie?

Is keeping the truth hidden a lie?

For example, if your brother stole the candy, and you mom asks everybody in the family who stole the candy and you dont answer even though you know it was your brother. is that lying?

You mean like when the religious object to observable science, like the earth revolving around the sun, or the non divine causes of natural disasters, just because it disproves ancient claims by Bronze Age writers? Yes

Side: yup

Hiding the truth is a lie... Different people will have different answers but I feel that hiding the truth can be considered as a lie.

Side: yup

If I said no, that would be a lie.

But hiding the truth is hiding the truth and that in itself should be critizised. Whether or not it fits the definition of a different word is irrelevant if it is an ethical question.

Side: nope
