The Exception paradox

“If there is an exception to every rule, then every rule must have at least one exception; the exception to this one being that it has no exception.”

“There’s always an exception to the rule, except to the exception of the rule — which is, in of itself, an accepted exception of the rule.”

Here we go again. Another paradox, about exceptions.

So the first part says there is an exception to every rule. Always one. The exception to this rule is the exception rule, as it has no exceptions. But this should not be an accepted exception, because every rule needs an exception. But it is accepted, and is an exception.

If you understood that, good for you. I have no clue what that was I just wrote. It looks like gibberish. It’s probably a rule that no one can understand that. But there’s an exception to that rule. Maybe.

    I don’t think that this is a paradox, it fits exactly as it is.

    Let me make it more clear. So if “Every statement has an exception” then the statement “Every statement has an exception” should have an exception, which is, there should be at least one statement without an exception, which in turn, contradicts the first statement… and hence the paradox!
