Q: Qual é a diferença entre contradictions e paradoxes ?
A: A contradiction is a statement that presents opposing ideas. A paradox is a statement that seems reasonable but actually has a self contradictory point.

Example of a contradiction:
1. If I say I really care about being healthy but all I eat is fried chicken and chocolate.
2. If I say I care about the environment but I never recycle.

Examples of a paradox:
1. I know one thing, that I know nothing.
2. Deep down, you're really shallow.

I feel like the contradiction examples are easier to understand than the paradox. So in the first sentence I'm saying that I know one single thing but it happens to be nothing. You can understand it but it doesn't really make sense because how can I claim to know something if I actually know nothing? For the second sentence "deep down" means being far below the surface like underground. Shallow is something that is not deep. For example, puddles that gather after it rains they are typically shallow. So how can something be deep if it's really not deep at all.
