i know it, it the sentence below is false and the sentence above is true then the sentence on the bottom cant be true since the sentence above is true since that sentence is false and the sentence above is fail but the sentence on the bottom is false cuz the above sentence isnt true but it is true when the sentence on the bottom if false.... ez stuff

+1 'cause unlike most PTKFGSes that simply reverse the original, this is an entirely different (if unoriginal) alternate.

The above is true, the below is false. They therefore cancel eachother out.

So, does PTKFGS make it into "lair" instead of "liar"? Nice music though.

Aha, I think I got it. It never said what factor of the sentence is true, so the loop "The sentence below is true > Sentence above is false" change the first sentence from "The sentence below is true" to "The sentence below is true unless this sentence is stated is false, otherwise it is false.", thusly destroying the paradox while keeping the original parameters in tact.
August 29th, 2006
(0)
Or, just realise it didn't say directly below, go to the sentence "You may now asplode head", and it makes it true, but the second sentence states the obvious since my head is not asplode, and destroys the paradox as well. Still, 5'd.

Phoenix, it is easier to read than that... "If the sentence below is true, THEN the sentence above is false, THUS your head may asplode now."

I understood the paradox, I was merely stating that unconventional thinking can easily make it not a paradox.

Problem with both being false is that it then makes the bottom false, double negative makes the false on the bottom a true, thusly making the top true. It then goes back to the paradox at hand.

The bottom sentence is simply neutral. No way to know if it is true or false. The sentence above being false doesn't necessarily mean that the sentence blow is also false.

the sentence is true below, the sentence is false above, which means the sentence I just read is actually false so the sentence above IS true and the sentence below is false. It's a simple inverse.

*yawn* is it supposed to be a riddle? The answer is that both sentences are irrelevant to me, you, and ytmnd.

Logically this is a paradox. However if you consider that both sentences are True and False at the same time until they are proven one or the other. Since both prove the other wrong that makes both sentences false. I think my head apsloded though... 5ed

Just because it says it, doesn't mean either is true. Don't believe everything you read. 3 for the "asplode head" thing, though. That was cute.

MasterZeo "Logically this is a paradox. However if you consider that both sentences are True and False at the same time until they are proven one or the other. Since both prove the other wrong that makes both sentences false. I think my head apsloded though... 5ed" OMG, Dude No. Your'e using negative as a parallel to Zero. Irony. Never confuse your absences with your Super-Negatives.

Cassio: No, this is a binary paradox. Therefore there are no negatives in this situation. Either 0 or 1, True or False. Good arguement though

If the below statement is true, that makes the above statement false, meaning that the below statement is in fact not true, but that would make it so that it is true because the above statement is false, wait, that made no sense, if it is false, then the statement claiming it is false is false entirely, then the above statement is true which then makes the below statement false if the below statement makes it so that the above statement is false, thus ending in an infinate contradiction.

A simpler version of this is "This statement is False." This stems from the Epimenides paradox, where Epimenides was a Cretan who made one immortal statement: "All Cretans are liars." Kurt Gödel's famous Incompleteness Theorem states (paraphrased): "All consistent axiomatic formulations of number theory include undecidable propositions."

the whole concept of creating a paradox is thrown out the window when the paradox itself doesn't exist. This isn't mindboggling, one of the statements is simply a lie.

Its simple . It says the sentence below s false . It never specifies which one therefore. It could refer to the "You may now asplode head" sentence. Therefore it states that you may , indeed , asplode head. But then the other statement says that the top statement is false. Therefore you may not asplode head.
