    I'll start:

    You can't travel back in time to stop something from happening.

    for example if you decided to travel back in time to kill hitler and stop the holocaust from happening;

    You would go back to the 20's or 30's and kill him before he rose to power

    However, when you go back to present day he will still be known for the Holocaust.



    This is because since you killed him that means that he never caused the Holocaust. But that also means that once you go back to present day since he didn't cause the holocaust you would have never had the intention to go back in time and stop hitler from causing the holocaust. Which means that you never reall did kill Hitler or go back in time which means that no one stopped him from causing the holocaust

    Irresistible force paradox
    That one is similar to the omnipotence paradox.

    It goes: Can God build a rock so big that not even he can lift up or can God build something so strong that even he cannot destroy
