  1. There are no logical problems with that statement. However, it is sufficiently vague as to lack any discernible meaning without further explanation.

    Are there any logical problems with this statement?

    “There are no absolutes.”

  2. “There are no absolutes” presents a logical paradox as the statement contradicts itself by absolutely stating that their are no absolutes.

  3. Hmmm.
    “There is only one absolute” implies the statement;
    “No others are absolute”
    or “Nothing else is absolute”
    Both of whoich to me sound like absolute statements.

    BTW I am doing a survery of bloggers medical conditions. You may find it interesting to check my list to see if you suffer from any of the conditions listed. I suspect you probably do and that you may have additional conditions which are not currently listed. Please do not hesitate to advise me by leaving a comment about any other Bloggers medical conditions that you may be aware of.

  4. Bunc, I think the statement is incomplete and, therefore, ambiguous. There is only one absolute what? But, I agree, if it means, “There is only absolute statement,” then you are right, it contradicts itself.

  5. All you have to do to show that it is false is provide another absolute. Which seems easy enough.

    Two plus two is always four.

    It is self referential, but I don’t see how it contradicts itself.

    “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Is this self contradictory? I don’t think so.
