An explanation is given for how false attributes lead to apparent paradoxes. We break down other similar riddles such as the rock too heavy for God to pick up and the encounter between the irresistible force and the immovable object. A critique of the double blind experimental method treats the method as paradoxical when viewed correctly. The Barber Paradox is explained as the result of one entity existing in multiple classes but this fact not taken into account by the perplexed solver. Some riddles in Christian orthodoxy are discussed. An explanation on how certain scientific and linguistic conventions lead to confusion ends the essay followed by a brief afterword on the authors intent in writing his essays.
