Abelson's paradox is an applied statistics paradox identified by Robert P. Abelson. The paradox pertains to a possible paradoxical relationship between the magnitude of the r2 (i.e., coefficient of determination) effect size and its practical meaning. Abelson's example was obtained from the analysis of the r2 of batting average in baseball and skill level. Although batting average is considered among the most significant characteristics necessary for success, the effect size was only a tiny 0.003. (Wikipedia).

Most paradoxes either stem from the misunderstanding of a topic, or aren't really paradoxes. However, here is a paradox that seems to contradict logic itself. What's going on here? And what does the liar paradox have to do with computer science? #some2

Abstract: Pierre de Fermat famously claimed to have discovered “a truly marvelous proof” of his last theorem, which the margin in his copy of Diophantus' Arithmetica was too narrow to contain. Fermat's proof (if it ever existed!) is probably lost to posterity forever, while Andrew Wiles' p
