    A paradox is a sentence in logic that cannot be true but also cannot be false. Many famous problems of this kind exist. One of most famous paradoxes is called the liar's paradox. It is the simple sentence "This sentence is a lie."

    It is like a sentence that means it can be true and can not be true. Like the example, "This sentence is a lie." The sentence isn't a lie, but it is telling that it is. Kind of like a contradiction.
