A Tale of Two Boxes: Newcomb’s Paradox
A lot of the times in debates, it is obvious that one side has a well-defined justified stance, and the other is weak and poorly strung together. However, there are going to be instances of topics with good arguments for both sides. And sometimes, the reasoning on both sides of the topic are so strong that it’s extremely difficult to debunk either one — even though you know that one side must be right. I’m not sure there’s any better example of this than a strange, mystifying, and deceptively simple scenario known as Newcomb’s paradox.
