So, the type of paradox you're talking about, is like saying "Today's opposite day" on opposite day. At least, if everything you said was true 100% of the time If you say it's opposite day, that means it can't be opposite day because everything say has the opposite meaning, but that means that it would in fact be opposite day, and it continues forever.

That's both an infinite regression paradox and a contradiction paradox. But, unlike the paradox axe, it is only a logical paradox it's not, strictly speaking, a paradox because it doesn't have a singular solution.

Even then, you can cut wood with stuff other than an axe. You could just break a branch off with your bare hands, for fucks' sake.

fhenix (11/07/2013) []
That's why I said this paradox was flawed. But by the definition of 'infinite regression' and 'paradox' the axe is still technically a paradox.

No, no, no. I said it HAS an answer. Two, in fact. You just can't pinpoint one.

What you're talking about is a contradiction paradox, I'm talking about circular paradoxes. They're both paradoxes, just different kinds.

Uhm....................... doesn't solving a paradox mean it's no longer a paradox? Like I said, a paradox has two correct, but mutually exclusive answers. Finding the answers is easy, but you can't pick one, due to the nature of the paradox. If you solve a paradox, it ceases to be a paradox. That's how paradoxes work.

The idea behind the paradox in the paradox axe may be flawed but it still shares a common theme with popular logical paradoxes (that theme being infinite regression). Just because this specific logical paradox has an answer to it, doesn't make it not a paradox, paradoxes have been solved before.

THAT'S NOT A BLOODY PARADOX! A paradox is a question with two correct, mutually exclusive answers. No one ever follows the damn definition. Just like with irony.
#46 
fhenix (11/07/2013) []
There are multiple different definitions to the word paradox, the one being used here is the idea behind logical paradoxes. This specific example involves infinite regression ('A' must be true in order for 'B' to be true, but 'B' must be true in order for 'A' to be true.)
