Paradoxes

Posted by obama the antichrist on August 25, 2009

ok so i feel like posting something fun

paradoxes are my favorite thing in the world. So i have some examples and i wanna know what you guys think HA

example 1

1) statement 2 is true

2) statement 1 is false

example 2

in a village there is a barber shaves everyone who does not shave themselves. who shaves the barber?

example 3

a cretan sails to greece and as soon as he arrives he declares “ALL CRETANS ARE LIARS!” is he telling the truth or is he lying?

    example 3: The contrary of “all cretans are liars” is “there is one cretan who tells the truth”, so he is lying, and somewhere there is a cretan who tells the truth.

    example 2: The barber shaves himself? Although I don’t know for sure if it’s an exclusive “everyone”…

    No idea for example 1

    I say, this is fun!

    for example 2 the barber cannot shave himself because if he shaves himself then he is shaving someone who shaves themself which he cannot do because he only shaves the ones who do not shave themselves

    is this a paradox?

    A) is a conservitave christian

    B) is a conservative christian

    B) is a morman

    A) says mormons are a satanic cult

    A) quotes B) in order to back up her arguments.

    i dunno, it just doesn’t make any sense to me.

    Then P, I challenge you to do some unbiased research of your own. I’m not using Bill as my reference to make my conclusion. When I first heard his claims I went on the internet and did my own research because his claims sounded crazy to me.

    “so you believe everything you read on the internet?” No. But I am capable of gathering information and using reason and logic, like say a jury, and forming a conclusion. So I’m challenging you all to do the same (unbiasedly).

    Why are you guys in complete denial about the existence of cults, the existence of evil and deception? Do you have any concern or care whatsoever that you might be defending evil? It doesn’t seem like it. It seems like you all just don’t want to admit that you might have been wrong. YOu know, that ego and pride thing again.

    kay, i’m not in denial of cults.
    i believe that you are a member of a cult.
    the liveprayer cult.

    kay, you are the one defending evil and deception, i.e. keller.

    Bill wont’ threaten me if I try to leave his “cult”. He’s never issued death threats. He doen’t make any claims that are not found in the Bible ( the Bible is his final authority). He doesn’t misrepresent his beliefs in order to recruit more members. So how is Bill’s ministry a cult?

    wrong kay, bill keller cherry picks what is in the bible to support his fallacious argument.
    or do i mean fellatious? it’s really hard to tell with keller.

    anyhow, kay, you are so brainwashed it isn’t even funny anymore.

    i love how something that was supposed to be fun turned political

    p: your paradox is not a paradox there is an easy answer kay agrees with becks politics and quotes his politics but doesnt agree with his religion so she doesnt use his religion for arguments. you dont have to agree with everything a person does to use them as a source.

    well, i’m going to have to disagree with that one ota.

    i’m convinced i am right here. to bash beck for being a member of a satanic cult yet using him for political arguments seems to be a paradox, if not, a true hypocrisy.

    but you are right, your post was meant for fun, so i will take it to the fight club.
