The Birthday paradox is a classic example of the multiple comparisons fallacy. In a group of 23 people (assuming each of their birthdays is an independently chosen day of the year with all days equally likely), it is more likely than not that at least two of the group have the same birthday.

From the point of view of common sense these claims more than far-fetched. But according to the rules of scientific logic they work. Firstly, a false statement could lead to any conclusion. Secondly, the fact that Jack is drinking is a false statement when we say that if he is drinking, everyone else is drinking also, which is also a false statement.

Published by Charles Scribner's Sons, U.S.A. Paradoxes provide a vehicle for exposing misinterpretations and misapplications of accepted principles.

This book discusses seven paradoxes surrounding probability theory. Some remain the focus of controversy; others have allegedly been solved, however the accepted solutions are demonstrablyBrand: Springer Netherlands. Paradoxes have been around since the time of Ancient Greeks & the credit of popularizing them goes to recent logicians.

Using logic you can usually find a fatal flaw in the paradox which shows why the seeminglly impossible is either possible or the entire paradox is built on flawed thinking. Can you all work out the problems in each of the 11 paradoxes shown here.
