Commence head exploding…
this is so old I can’t even remember it
Does not compute
Not how it works. If he says that his nose will grow now, and it doesn’t, he is indeed lying. The fact that his nose then begins to grow after the fact makes the nose grow “after now”, thus his nose grows because of the lie after the specific time designated as “now” has passed, and thus does not create a paradox.
And I don’t think there are words in the English language to make the above paradox work.
It can be made to work. Take “Now” out of the statement. Simply put “My nose will grow.” will create a paradox.
whose welcome is it?
It works already.
the fallacy is within a paradox, how could one stupid enough to lie and think he is a real boy, possibly be able to comprehend and use a paradox that involves higher thinking?
that takes out the parodox..
your saying it wouldn’t have to happen at that moment and could be at any time in the future.
it would therefore not grow and he would be telling the truth
a lie isn’t the only reason for it growing.
if he happened to be under stress while he said that then their would be no paradox also
He’s stating something that will happen in the future. “My nose will grow now” isn’t a lie, more than “I will win the lottery next month” is. Otherwise, pinocchio could have the powers of predicting the future.
I don’t understand the last statement. o_0
there is no rule that his nose cant grow when he tells the truth.
