What Is A Paradox?

    For young earth creationists the faint sun paradox is already falsidical. The current interpretation of geology, as gradual deposition over eons, is wrong and the stratification we see is actually the result of a global flood. The aparrent progression in the fossil record is the logical outcome of both position and hydrological sortability of the animal kingdom, etc. This also explains the decaying magnetic fields of supposed ancient planets.

        This comment is false.

        Also, this video inspired me to create some basic python code to show the surprising paradoxical results of the Monty Hall problem. Here is the GitHub repo (https://github.com/Jsoconno/monty_hall_problem).

        Thanks for always producing compelling content!

            Interesting. For falsidical i just assume that everything is comprehensible if you think about a line, in geometry: It Is made of points which have no dimensions. So technically a line shoudn't have a length either. So achilles Will never reach from A to B because the space between them is made of dots that have no domensions.
            Unfortunately I didnt get the logic of "veridical"... 😅. The last one made me laugh! But the earth having liquid water when the sun wasnt supposed to warm up enough isnt such a good example in my oponion... There may be some explanation we Simply still dont know. Dont forget that the atmosphere of a planet can change everything. For example Venus is the hottest Planet and not mercury, which Is closer to the sun, because of its atmosphere. And Im sorry for that blue tape! 😂

              Di = Double
              Lemma = Base form or progenitor
              so Twin origin or Path split

                  earth was liquid in the center from gravity stetching and squashing it slightly as it orbited around the sun. this is similar to europa, one of jupiter's moons. BOOM i just solved that last problem

                      I went back in time and set a boobytrap to kill my grandfather 8 months before my fathers birthday. Dad was born, i went on to be born and i still went back and killed grandpa. Funny thing is i did this because i recieved a letter from my unborn son warning me my grandfather built a time machine travelled to the future and killed me the day before my son was born and his mother stole the machine and went to my sons 18th birthday warned him and gave him the machine so he could go back and warn me. Leaving my wife and unborn son stranded 18 years from now. So my son wrote me the warning and left me the machine then killed himself. Knowing he will be born again in the future. One solved paradox.

                        What's blowing my mind...
                        Say you have the first contestant, they pick a door, Monte does his thing. Do you switch: original 1/3, switch 2/3 chance.
                        Remove that contestant, bring in someone new who has no knowledge of what's happened.
                        Ask them to pick a door out of two, is that now 50/50.
                        So the exact same scenario has different probabilities for different people?

                          The person brought does not know which of the two doors you first picked and which is the one you could have switched with. If he happens to choose the one you first picked then the chances of the prize being behind that one is 1/3, and if he picked the other door there is a 2/3 chance that the prize is behind that one.

                        Being fooled by Antinomy means your intelligence is put at question, i don't believe in neither the grandfather paradox nor the liar's paradox.
                        It is difficult to explain via the grandfather paradox but the liar's paradox is a perfect example to explain why i think this way.
                        Like it says, it is only a crisis in thought, it has a solution, it is just not understood because of a lack of tools to understand it, these might be a keen intelligence or knowledge of the enviroment, we have no knowledge of time travel so it is not veridical, but it would be if we expanded our knowledge, the liar's paradox is just confusing, it isn't hard, it is basically confusing just because of the premise that communication tries to convey information, it does not, not always, I am lying is a true statement because the intent of the person saying it is to misdirect the person reading it from thinking that the person is saying the truth to an endless loop of confusion that is what one coloquialy calls a paradox, it is not complicated once you understand that the confusion sprouts from falsely believing there is an understanding between the liar and the listener that they have to use conventional speech.
                        The liar's paradox is hardly a paradox at all, it is just a thought exercise at most.

                              Wait, achilles ran 100mtrs, in time it took hare to run 1. So by that example alone. The next time achilles runs, hes caught the hare. And passed him by, 99mtrs. Given the same time n speed was the same.

                                    The best number is 73.
                                    It is the 21st prime number. Its opposite, 37, is the 12th prime numbers (reverse of 21), and the product of 3 and 7 is......hold on to your hats.....21.

                                      That running paradox is not true. You cannot divide it further than the achilles' leg. He will always move ome step plus his foot length. There you go

                                          vsauce2 the answer to the faint young sun is obvious: the earth's geothermal energy and greenhouse gases kept water liquid. OR the oceans DID freeze but the sun warmed up and melted the oceans.

                                                      Paradox derives from greek and it's a complex word. Para (gr. "Παρά") here has the meaning of "despite of" and dox derives from the word "δόξα" which in ancient Greek had the meaning of "opinion" or "hypothesis".

By the time he has reached the place where the tortoise is, the tortoise has walked 10 meters. By the time he reaches the second spot, the tortoise has walked 1 meter. By the time he reaches the third spot, the tortoise has walked 10 centimeters. And so on to infinity. And then Zeno asks: if it takes infinitely many segments to actually reach the tortoise, how could he ever do it? Well, calculus tells us that there's a way to sum infinitely many numbers (in our case the sum is exactly 111.111... = 1000/9 meters). So even though the distance is composed of infinitely many segments, it is indeed possible to cover it in a finite amount of time.

                                                                    Another Zeno's paradox involved a question of what does it mean that an object is in motion at a particular moment. Suppose I fire an arrow; of course it's in motion. But how can I tell? Is it in motion now? Or one second from now? Two seconds? After all, at any given point in time an object occupies only one spot. And if I can't tell that an object is in motion at any given moment, how can I tell that it's in motion at all? (Again, he is aiming towards the concept of derivation from modern mathematics; but calculus didn't exist in Zeno's time.)

                                                                        Falsidical paradoxes are things that seem true but actually false.
                                                                        Antinomies (the true paradoxes) are statements that are irreconcilable for us at this point, they seem to contradict themselves, but we don't understand yet why, how to resolve it, or maybe the contradiction stems from accepting some part of it that is false or framing things incorrectly.

                                                                        Paradoxes are good tools for reasoning. Finding out the problem with an antinomy and turning it into a falsidical or veridical can come along with a discovery and advancement in our knowledge.

Would you change your answer then? What if you had twenty envelopes and the host revealed 18 that were wrong skipping over one suspicious envelope. Would you then change your answer? The effect is the same with just three it's just not as significant a change in the odds.
