a statement or proposition that, despite sound (or apparently sound) reasoning from acceptable premises, leads to a conclusion that seems senseless, logically unacceptable, or self-contradictory.
a glaring example of paradox … it doesn’t look like the statement makes logical but it makes perfect sense – it is to point out the truth even if the statement contradicts each other.
I can also invite you to read the quote of G. K. Chesterton on the paradox of Christmas.
