Is This a Paradox??

~Is the following quote an example of a paradox?

"We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed".

Paradox

This is my favorite paradox my friend came up with. This is for the, "Everything is possible believers." If everything is possible, then it is possible that some things are impossible. Blows you mind doesn't it?

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, 07/23/2014 - 17:49
My turn

If some things are impossible, then its impossible for something to not be possible.

Not really a paradox

The "paradox" stated above is not really a paradox. "If everything is possible, then it is possible that some things are impossible." However, the fact that some things are impossible proves that NOT everything is possible. Therefore, despite being a truly clever argument against "Everything is possible" believers, this statement is not a paradox.

2 much thinking

Because people believe it is impossible and once they get that stupid idea out of their head and with enough time all is possible

The Grandfather Paradox

Suppose you build a time machine and go back about 200 years ago. You accidentally do something that causes your grandfather not to be born. Since your grandfather was never born , one of your parents was never born which means you were never born. If you were never born, how did you build a time machine and kill your grandfather?

1 flaw in your paradox: You

1 flaw in your paradox: You didn't use the time machine to kill your grandfather, he was never born.

Posted by Anonymous on Thu, 06/19/2014 - 01:25
flaw in paradox: space and time unravels to this very mystery.

but they never split, so you would be born again and use that time machine to do so again. people have debated this but i think that this would happen again and again until someone interfered with the cycle.

Time travel paradox

no the thing with time travel is it splits the time lines at the point to travel to so its kind of like creating a parallel universe once you leave your natural time such as traveling back to when you were born obviously you couldn't however you could alter some things around and have that time stream differ from your normal one which is where you start off and come back to because it is not possible for the exact same person to be in multiple places like that hope this is useful
ex; you go back kill your great grand father or something like that
there are only 3 possible outcomes
1. your existence is erased from time
2. the time lines diverge and you get stuck in an alternate universe
3. some how you travel back to the present and end up in your normal timeline
i put these up based on likeliness

Fletcher's paradox

In the arrow paradox, Zeno states that for motion to be occurring, an object must change the position which it occupies. He gives an example of an arrow in flight. He states that in any one instant of time, for the arrow to be moving it must either move to where it is, or it must move to where it is not. It cannot move to where it is not, because this is a single instant, and it cannot move to where it is because it is already there. In other words, in any instant of time there is no motion occurring, because an instant is a snapshot. Therefore, if it cannot move in a single instant it cannot move in any instant, making any motion impossible. This paradox is also known as the fletcher’s paradox—a fletcher being a maker of arrows.
Whereas the first two paradoxes presented divide space, this paradox starts by dividing time – and not into segments, but into points.

That's Calculus

That's why calculus shouldn't be possible as calculus is finding the rate at which something's changing at in instantaneous period of time. But they do the impossible in math all the time it feels like.

A classic example of paradox involves Schrödinger's cat. Look it up if this statement doesn't make sense:

Paradox

My advice to you, is to never listen to other people's advice.

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, 10/16/2013 - 20:42
it makes sense, but if you

it makes sense, but if you were to never listen to peoples advice then you would not listen to this advice but if you listen to this advice it tells you not to listen to peoples advice which then leads you to not listen to this advice which means you're listening to this advice which means you're not listing to peoples advice which means you're ignoring this advice by listening to this advice, so on and so forth and what have you.......I'll tell you what have you, a paradox is what you have?

Is this one

Is this a paradox 'the closer it came, the smaller it got'

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, 09/25/2013 - 19:30
Not really, it could be

Not really, it could be getting smaller for different reasons, so it may or may not be a paradox.
However:
The closer it got the farther away it seemed
is the typical paradox.
Typically it completely depends on how it's being used.

Yes it is. When things come closer, they're supposed to appear bigger.
