    Maybe the Earth's core was hotter than it is today?

        My theory on the faint sun is that if you look at europa it has a thick icy crust and yet has a liquid ocean under it. This is caused by gravitational heating. With this being said with the sun could exert forces to the earth to keep an ocean under ice. This could also explain why land fairing life took so long to appear.

          What do you mean? The Earth starts as a lava planet (technically space dust from a nebula from stars dying from more nebulae from more stars dying, theoretically from a singularity of unknown origin that caused the Big Bang), so the paradox is solved. Earth was neither icy nor watery, it’s lava.

            Couldn't the sun paradox be due to the hot core of the earth. Either that or earth was a partial vacuum creating a lower boiling point for water. 🤷‍♂️

              12:27 Or maybe that's proof of God's existence.

                May be we had different kinda heat energy back then coz of which our earth had liquid water

                  The liar paradox can be resolved when you consider the use of metalanguages. You can describe your own words without necessarily adding that description to the set of things you have said, because it is on a different level of linguistic description. Alfred Tarski reasoned that language is divided into many levels of metalanguage, each higher level describing the one beneath it, with the bottom level being normal object language. A single "level" of language cannot describe its own truth content, so any claims about the truth of a statement or set of statements are separate from the statements themselves.

                      1 2 3 let’s say you pick 1. If the winning one is 2, the host reveals 3. If it’s 3, the host reveals 2. If it’s 1, he can reveal either one. So if re reveals, let’s say 2, it’s more likely that the winning one is 3 since if it was 1, he could’ve also revealed 3. Basically, if you picked the wrong one (odds 66.7%) and switch, you will win. If you switch and lose, that means you picked the right one at first, and the chances of that are 33.3%. So it’s less likely.

                                  Isn't the phrase "I am lying" true because if it is true you are lying about lying thus making the statement "I am lying" true about itself? Or if the phrase stands alone then there simply is nothing to lie about which means you have created a false/non-existent scenario to lie about, therefore making the phrase "I am lying" once again a lie, therefore making it true? Or if you are making a statement where you've told the truth then you say "I am lying" then you're lying about lying, therfore making the statement true about itself again? Or if you are making a statement where you've told a lie then you say "I am lying" then you are telling the truth about lying? So if you say I am lying you are simply telling the truth????? Does that even make sense????????

                                                1/2 + 1/4 + 1/8 etc will never reach 1 even at infinity as infinity is not a real number as 1/0 is not a real number. 1/0.0000000000001 is a big number, but even 1/000000000000000000000000 + an infinite number of 0s - 1 plus a 1 is still a big number. 1/0 is still not infinity as it is undefinable.

                                                      I don't think Faint Young Sun qualifies as a real paradox. We already know many possible solutions, such as certain greenhouse gas combinations, just not which one it is. That makes it a problem rather than a paradox.

                                                      Zeno's paradox in comparison seemed paradoxical because people did not know any way that a solution could even be possible. They didn't believe that a the sum of infinitely many numbers could ever be finite. That would be equivalent to us having no idea how the FYS situation could ever be explained because we don't believe that the earth could ever absorb a higher percentage of the sun's output.
