- I am lying now.
or more succinctly
- This statement is false.
As opposed to the Epimenides paradox, this is a true paradox: assuming that the statement is true, then it must be false; assuming it is false, then it must be true. No truth value can be consistently assigned to the statement.
To avoid having a sentence refer to its own truth value, one can also construct the paradox
- The following sentence is true.
- The preceding sentence is false.
