The Finkelstein Paradox

Seth is a buddy of mine, but even he will have to admit this is funny.

Seth argues logically and genuinely that he shouldn’t be in Wikipedia.  The Guardian and many bloggers pick up the story.

As a result, Seth becomes even more famous, thereby damaging his argument that he isn’t notable enough to be included.

Rogers wonderfully dubs this the Finkelstein Paradox.

It’s Sunday morning, so let me quote some applicable scripture:

Brian: I’m not the Messiah! Will you please listen? I am not the Messiah, do you understand? Honestly!
Girl: Only the true Messiah denies His divinity.
Brian: What? Well, what sort of chance does that give me? All right! I am the Messiah!
Followers: He is! He is the Messiah!
