Little paradox of the day

by Lorenzo Piccoli


Epimenides the Cretan says that all the Cretans are liars; but Epimenides is himself a Cretan; therefore he is himself a liar. But if he be a liar, what he says is untrue, and consequently the Cretans speak the truth; therefore, being him a Cretan, if he says the Cretans are liars, Epimenides is himself a liar, and what he says is untrue.
