I know there's threads like the "Things that make you go hmm" thread but I mean solely paradoxes, what ever they are, explain them if you can

I know the obvious one is the Killing your grandfather one, but you'd never go back in time if you were dead, but if you didn't go back in time, you wouldn't kill your grandfather, and so on.

I always liked the one regarding omnipotence. Can a deity (take God as an example) create a rock too heavy to lift?

God can either create a rock that he cannot lift, or he can not.
If he can create a rock that he can't lift, he is not omnipotent, as he cannot lift the rock.
If he cannot create a rock that he can't lift, he is not omnipotent, as he cannot create the rock.
Hence, God is not omnipotent.

It's a little like 'What would happen if an unstoppable force met an immovable object?'

I don't think you people quite grasp the profoundly brainteasing idea of "who was fone". Shame, I was looking forward to some intellectual debate.

Shrodinger's Cat. If you put a cat inside a sealed box with a container of lethal poison that is released at a random time, since you can't know if the poison has been released since the box is sealed, the cat could be alive or dead, but you can't says it's alive for sure and you can't say it's dead for sure. if you can't say it's alive or dead, then what is it?

I never actually heard or read the entire "who was fone" thing, I've only seen it referenced in "Make your own FUUUUUU-" and that "Edit this picture with the man with a mustache" thread.

Close, the answer is "Mary"

a famous one
if a tree falls in the woods and no one is around to hear it does it make a sound

Ive put some thought into that and decided that her mom was a heavy smoker and therefore had a gritty deep voice. How is that not obvious to you...


and to contribure


If a tree falls and noone is around, does it make noise...

If you say yes, how do you know, you werent there

If you say no you submit that you are the only one who knows whether or not it made sound, were there not deer and other animals to hear the tree

and if sound is completely gone unless you are there, so must the other senses. This would mean the tree does not smell, have a taste, cannot be touched or seen. This would have to mean that there is no tre, as you have not interacted with it.

so next time someone asks you if a tree falls, does it make a sound, you may simply reply "What tree? There is no tree!"

hope you are confused
Bands I must see in concert
Silvertide
The Black Crowes
Jackyl
Black Stone Cherry

well over a period of time if the gas was not released the cat would of died anyway through the lack of oxygen in the box

all of life is a paradox. there is no beginning or no end, just a giant paradox.
There is a war going on for your mind.

If you are thinking, you are winning.


Resistance is victory.


We are building up a new world.

No it would make vibrations but no sound because sound is perception of vibrations.
