    If you know of any contradiction statement, post them here. There are a few interesting one but I can't recall it.
    It proves to be true, but then It contradict itself.

    Is it possible for a contradiction statement to be true even though it contradict itself?

    Nature has no contradiction everything about it is perfect.

    actually it does i remember hearing about their being a clash between eninstein laws for really big things and then laws of electromagnets and stuff, but don't hold me on that.

    but tehre are more contradictions between nature i think, i don't think that mother nature is perfect, she created us and we are the worst thing to happen to this planet

    That's a pretty bleak view of mankind junior_smith , unfortunately you happen to be correct IMO......Jumbo shrimp , honest polotitianare a couple contradictions (or do oxymorons not count?) I mentioned the platypus in another thread , I thint that qualifies as a natural contradiction ; a mammal who lays eggs instead of giving live birth .

    Therefore, a contradiction statement can be true.

    Based on your input.

    strange isn't it?

    a: are you going to eat that?
    b: i'm not not going to eat it.
    a: why not? it's good for you.
    b: that's why i'm not not going to eat it.
    a: why not? but it's good for you.
    b: that's what i say. I'm not not going to eat it.
    a: ok, mr. not. I'm definitely NOT NOT going to talk to you.

    got that from a radio advertise.

    i think it depends on what you mean as a contradiction,

    you could say that oxygen is vital for all living organisms, yet there are oranisms who die with oxygen.

    or how pacifists are often sturing up commotion to start wars in order to end them.

    or to lead is to follow

    Okay....

    Cats always land on their feet

    and...

    Buttered toast always lands butter side down

    so...

    If you tied a buttered piece of toast onto a cat's back and dropped it, would it land on its feet or it's back ?

    *** UPDATE***

    This should really be in the research forum

    Okay, threw the cat 20 times. 19 / 20 it landed on its' feet. We had to abandon the experiment after 20th time...
