**“Accept what is. Release what was. Create what must BE.” ~Andrea Balt**

**The Liar’s Paradox** (Sutherland Careers)

**What is it? **More famously known as the Epimenides paradox, this is one of the oldest known paradoxes having been first suggested circa 600BC. Greek Philosopher Eubulides of Miletus postulated “*A man says that he is lying. Is what he says true or false?*” The basic premise of this paradox is – “*This statement is false.”*

**Wait, What? **If “*This statement is false*” is **true**, then “*This statement is false*” is **true**. Therefore “*This statement is false*” ** must **be false. The hypothesis that “

*This statement is false*” is true leads to the conclusion that “

*This statement is false*” is

**false**,

*which is a contradiction*.

To put it in simpler terms, I will assign the coefficient of (A) to the statement “*This statement is false*” which gives us:

*If (A) is true, then (A) is true. Therefore (A) must be false. The hypothesis that (A) is true leads to the conclusion that (A) is false, which is a contradiction. Think that is confusing? We are just getting started*!

All is well! ❤
