    "How could Earth have liquid water if the sun wasn't warm enough?"
    Tidal flexing and geothermal radiation... it's not really a paradox, you're only asking too specific of a question which disregards the necessary information to give an answer

    Isn't it possible that the 3 envelopes paradox is actually falsilidical and it just needs an advance in math to prove it?

    Paradox does not come from Latin. It comes for the Greek word paradoxo which is split to para and doxa.
    Para which means despite + doxa which means common knowledge.

    Para (contrary to) and dox (opinion) come from Greek, not Latin. The word paradox came to us from Latin, fully formed.
    Same goes for "dilemma".... which, incidentally, is actually a choice between two equally *undesirable* alternatives. So, dilemma does not describe the situation when deciding whether to switch envelopes. That's what we call a "difficult choice" since you could behave according to the maths and still lose 😆

    Ok, i think i just solved the "Grandfather" antinomy paradox. It is falsidical, cuz its imposible and illogical to travel in time. Time its always present. Traveling into the past is actually like saying, "in present time in past time". Get it?

  • Σπυρίδων Παναγιωτόπουλος

    Hey Kevin, love the show, but I want to make a correction. Paradox is Greek 100%, coming from para ("contrary to") and doxa ("opinion").

    There is no such thing as a Grandfather Paradox. There is no paradox. You simply went back behind him in time and killed him, which of course in that matter would render you non existent, but only AFTER he died.
    The only mystery here that people are hung up on is the fact that they forgot about the grandson's time machine. He went behind time, in the past in order to change the future. That's not a paradox.

    When sun was cold, Earth's core was actually super hot.
    Surface of ocean was frozen but there were pockets of liquid water near the land in Sea. So, life budded in those dark resseces until sun warmed up. Maybe.

    You explained the Achilles and the Tortoise one completely wrong. The entire premise is that you put as baseline that each time Achilles moves he CLOSES THE DISTANCE BY HALF, does he ever reach the tortoise? Then you can show it as 1/2 +1/4 + 1/8 + 1/16 + 1/32 +1/64 and so forth. You give 0 explanation at what speed Achilles moves or what distance he covers. Saying he moves "some more". Seriously....

    God is a paradox (antinomy) He was, He is, He will be. Or is God not a paradox because He exists outside of perceivable finite time? What we observe of God is only in linear time. We see a past, we see a present, and we foresee a future (actually we're foretold a future), but since we are stuck in a linear timeline we can't measure the extents of God or of creation or of the Judgement to come _ which to God has already happened and hasn't happened yet.
    Interesting post. Thanks for the video!

    the tortoise one is easy to be solved, in 1 meter of the tortoises movement, it makes 100m , so 1m with the tortoises speed 100m for alchallis, so, he would catch up right after the 101m mark. for example, the tortoise is 100m ahead, he moved 1 meter when alchaliss reached 100m, the tortoise moved 0.5 meters when alchalis moved 1 meter, but a tortoise takes longer to move 0.5 a meter then alchalis, the alchalis would go right past,

    Took me a long time to understand the second one, but I get it now.
    Basically there's a 66% chance that what you picked was wrong, and the other wrong one was revealed, so switching would be correct. Sadly, there's also a chance that you got the correct one, one of the two wrong ones were revealed, and you're dooming yourself.
    Hey, you get double the chance though!

    The sad thing is, five years ago I understood all of this with no problem whatsoever. Now, it takes a good couple of minutes before I get it. I predict 1000 years from now the human race will be divided into two parts: the smart part, who will be incredibly smart, much more so than us; and the dummies whose genealogy didn't exercise their brain enough. And the smart ones will eventually rationalise the genocide of the dummies. You can extrapolate the eventual outcome from that scenario if you feel like it.

    Is an everything bagel a paradox? Which one would it be? An everything bagel is a bagel with literally everything. Like everything like grass, dog poop, carbon dioxide, you name it. But in order for an everything bagel to have everything, it has to have another, The everything bagel inside the everything bagel has to have another everything bagel which then has to have another everything bagel etc. etc. you get the point.

    The 'faint young sun' paradox in my opinion should not be a paradox at all. To me it is clear that it was just something other than the sun that heated the Earth's waters, such as the Earth's core or possibly volcanic eruptions, and so on. I don't think I'd call it a paradox at all.

    Grandfather Paradox does not exist. If you go back in time your current self would disappear from your current timeline never to be seen again.
    Your past self meets your grandfather and kills him and you live out your remaining years either in the past or appear in a future that is different than the one you left which exists in a parallel timeline. You still existed in both timelines just at different times. The moment you go back in time it no longer is "your" timeline. A domino effect will occur because your atoms occupy space that was originally occupied by something else so these new atoms have an effect on objects which change the course of every object beyond that creating a new timeline.

      That assumes that you believe in the many universes theory. If you consider time as a linear progression as many physicists and mathematicians suggest, then going back in time to kill your grandfather would produce an effect that is uncertain.
