heres a paradox for ya...
if there are infinite other universes each with different variations in their laws of physics,
and if we only discovered the possibility of other universes by figuring out our own laws of physics, there must be atleast 1 universe in which the laws of physics state no other universes can possibly exist.

This is what's always gotten me about the whole infinite universe with infinite possibilities thing; if that were true, there would be plenty of universes where they discover how to travel to a parallel universe. and according to the infinite possibilities theory, there is a version of that universe where the people hopping universes land in a different universe than originally. and versions where they land in a different place in the same universe. by this logic every point of existence would be occupied by someone crossing into that universe from their own. I don't know if you could follow that, I can never explain it well to people, but that's my 2 cents. So either there isn't an infinite number of parallel universes, or there is but traveling between them is completely impossible in every universe.

There would be a Universe where, for one reason or another, no other Universes can exist.

The laws of physics don't state that they do, it's just a possibility based on our understanding of nothing, and the assumption that there is an infinite number of dimensions.

If there is at least one in an infinite amount of universes, that means there is an infinite amount of universes whose laws of physics state that there can not be an infinite amount of universes. But that goes without saying that the universe is woof woof woof woof woof

Try this instead....uhhh let me think AH GOT ONE!!! A Cretan sails to Greece and says to some Greek men who are standing upon the shore: "All Cretans are liars." Did he speak the truth, or did he lie? A week later, the Cretan sailed to Greece again and said: "All Cretans are liars and all I say is the truth." Although the Greeks on the shore weren't aware of what he had said the first time, they were truly puzzled.

If someone says "I always lie", are they telling the truth? Or are they lying?

How is that a paradox?
In order to educate retarded plebs like OP here is an example of a paradox:

>One day a scientist is walking home with his wife.
>suddenly a mugger jumps out and tries to take his wife's bag, there is a struggle and the wife gets shot.
>The scientist's wife dies.
>The scientist then decides to dedicate his life to building a time machine so he can one day go back in time and save his wife.
>He succeeds in going back in time and prevents the mugging meaning his wife survives the mugging.
>However seeing as the death of his wife was what motivated him to make the time machine he couldn't have made it if she dies thus meaning he would would not have travelled back in time to save her.

Can you see how that's a paradox? It is a situation which is impossible as it contradicts itself.

Here's another simpler example if that was still too difficult for you knobs to understand.

>Take the statement "I am lying" If this statement is true then it must be a lie which would mean it is not true. However if it is not true then it is not a lie meaning it is true. Another impossibility.

That, OP, hopefully cleared up what a paradox is. If it didn't Then you are an even greater ******** than I originally assumed.

I quite like that one. However, if we consider a version of the multiverse theory, then the scientist will go back in time, edit events, and by doing so, he would have created another universe where a version of himself still has a wife, but he himself will not - they aren't the same person.
I like this thread. Funnyjunk needs more discussion of philosophy.

to the first "paradox" if the scientist retains his memory of having his wife killed wouldn't still strive to build another time majigger then go back in time to tell him shelf about what happened   
   
however if there was already a shcientist (like he goes back and he sees himself) all he would have to do is tell him about what happened, unless that creates another paradox (there being two of him and all)   
   
this has all been done before every circumstance in movies and shows, it personally reminds me of Mirai Nikki   
<---mfw this is easily explained IMO

well, true time travel doesn't work that way but its a good example of a paradox anyway. as for retaining the memory it still doesn't mater as he would not want to build a time machine as his wife would have survived.

I'll agree it is a good example of a paradox   
   
I think he would want to build a time machine because he would have to complete the endless loop of going back and telling himself what would happen if he doesnt build one/save his wife

A paradox is, as defined by dictionary.com
a statement or proposition that seems self-contradictory or absurd but in reality expresses a possible truth.
Meaning that a paradox is not always impossible.
The term Grey Jedi for instance is a paradox, as Grey means neutral in this sense and Jedi are actively fighting for good.
But in reality a Grey jedi is still a jedi, as he was trained as a Jedi, and still believes in the beliefs of the Jedi, though he realizes that for there to be balance, he cannot do anything. AN example, Jolee Bindo.

Here's an actual paradox:   
   
There is a village in which the men are classified into two groups. Group A is classified as men who shave their own beards. Group B is classified as men who have their beards shaved by the village barber. If the barber shaves his own beard, and is also consequently shaved by the barber, then who was phone?

The version I know of is a little different:
There is a barber shop, whose slogan was "I shave everyone who doesn't shave themselves." Does the barber shave himself?

I remember reading up on this years ago; I vaguely recall it took over 32 years to figure out, and the answer was that the barber indeed, shaves himself.

He shaves himself. The statement does not preclude the possibility that he may also shave some people who do shave themselves on occasion.
