That's the Liar Paradox because there is no way to assign them a consistent true or false

I studied this at school once, and YES there is an answer.
Though it involves messing with semantics and understanding. Please, don't ask me to explain :)

Do you guys know about the Travel to The Past Paradox/Loop (Not the Kill your Grandfather Paradox):

You leave house. You are walking on the street. You decide to cross the street. A few seconds later, you hear someone screaming: "I found a winning lottery ticket". You think: "I'll go to the past to warn me to don't cross the street", and activate your portable time-machine. You find yourself and warn yourself not to cross the street. You find the ticket. Since you find the ticket, you don't need to go back in time to tell you not to cross the street. So, there's no one to tell you not to cross the street, so you'll end up crossing the street, anyways.

my brain is now a soup.

It's easy.
the first sentence was a lie.
th 2nd sentence was true.
that's my opinion?
:ph43r:

No. If you read it, you'll see that, if you don't rewrite those phrases in a non-loopable way, they'll have no way to be solved.

Lamb Bug - January 21, 2009 04:54 PM (GMT)
But if the second sentence is true, the first sentence is true. Which it can't be.

zacerr - January 23, 2009 12:56 PM (GMT)
if 2 is true and 1 is false then 2 is false which makes 1 false but that makes AAAAAAHHHHHHHH my brain hurts :blink: computer there we go much better
