The Puzzling Thread of Paralogical Paradoxes watch

    • Thread Starter

    Recently I've been considering a lot of paradoxes. Here's one.

    You can't rely on anything you are told to be the truth.

    I take this statement as true, but if you do, are you not engaging in a paradox? Since you've just been told it.

    Another one:

    Words can't fully describe what your eyes can see.

    You've seen this statement. But words can't fully describe what it means. Which makes me think, is the use of language some kind of paradox too?

    Anyway if anyone has a good paradox, please go ahead.

    The sentence below is true.

    The sentence above is false.
