I take no credit for this, my friend thought of it last night.

My friend argues that there is nothing in the world that everyone would agree on, except the fact that there is nothing in the world that everybody could agree on.

But since there is something to agree on, doesn't that make this statement a paradox?

this statement is false.

Incorrect. I believe that everyone would agree to the fact that everything eventually dies.

Isn't that the same as "Everyone Is Unique"?

Everybody is different, but if everyone is different, different is the same, so everyone is the same, hence, not unique.
Unless everyones different is a different type of different, then, we are all differently uniquely different.

No, because im sure you could find someone in the world that doesnt agree with the statement 'there is nothing in the world that everyone would agree on'.

Well, I have thought about that same statement before, it creates a massive head-ache to be honest, but yes, the statement itself is a paradox

Some things everyone in the world agrees on, unless they're just disagreeing to be an asshole.
1. There are days and nights, barring language barriers (that is, days and nights are agreed upon to occur, regardless of what you call them.)
2. What goes up must come down (eventually.)
3. Humans need oxygen in some form to survive.
4. There is a surface beneath us, whether it be the Earth or the back of a giant turtle.

And the list go on and on, This is just more to add to the paradox.

This is like russles paradox, but makes less sense. I'm sure there are things everyone agrees on, some of which have been mentioned.
#24
That isn't a paradox. The word "except" removes that tag because it shows an exception to the original statement. If I showed you 3 squares and a circle, and I said "those are all squares EXCEPT the circle," it would not be a paradox. However, I disagree, we can all agree on certain things without a doubt. Several have been listed, it's not as much of a mindphluck as you think.. We did logic in my basic geometry class.

I was about to say that that isn't a paradox as you could argue it's the exception to its own rule, but then it would make the no exceptions part wrong therefore it's paradox am i right?

and also its tricky this paradox stuff.
#30
I'm sure you could find someone to disagree with it.


Its a bit of a 'Theres an exception to every rule, without exception' really isn't it...

I think it's called an exception.

I also think that the sentence should be rephrased.

You would be wrong...I, for one, agree...but just about every religion out there promises 'eternal life'...so it would depend on what you classify as 'dead'.

Everything i say is a lie

Think about that, if your lying then that phrase is true, contradicting what you said, but if it is a lie then that means what you said is juts a lie meaning it true therefore contradicting yourself again

There are things that everyone in the world will agree upon. Stuff like...

1. life is finite, everyone dies at some point
2. human beings shit
3. humans need to eat to stay alive

and other stuff like that
