Paradoxes

A paradox is a statement that contradicts itself, like something that defies logic. Here are a few of my favorites…
Let’s say there is a bullet which can shoot through any barrier. Let’s also say there is an absolutely bullet-proof armor which no object can penetrate. What will happen if such a bullet hits such an armor?
Can a man drown in the fountain of eternal life?
Your mission is not to accept the mission. Do you accept?
A girl goes into the past and kills her Grandmother. Since her Grandmother is dead, the girl was never born. If she were never born, she never killed her grandmother.
If the temperature this morning is 0 degrees and the Weather Channel says, “it will be twice as cold tomorrow”, what will the temperature be?
Answer truthfully (yes or no) to the following question: Will the next word you say be ‘no’?
What happens if you are in a car going the speed of light and you turn the headlights on?
I conclude with this challenge:
Let the God Almighty create a stone, which he is not capable of lifting!

  1. Hi Kristi!
    I’m Érica, I am from Lisbon, Portugal.
    I sometimes start thinking about paradoxes and I just stay with my head spinnig.
    Since you seem to like paradoxes, here it is one for you:
    Can Magneto lift Thor’s hammer? (note- magneto can control metals and thor’s hammer only can be lifted by him but is made of metal)
    I also love your blog theme.
