Should anyone be interested in what Sorities paradox is (little by little paradox) - here's a website
http://plato.stanford.edu...

It is basically:

1. We can agree that 10,000 grains of sand is a heap
2. We can also agree that if you take away 1 grain, it is still a heap
3. Thus we can agree that -1 grain is not enough to change a heap to be not a heap.
4. Therefore, 9,999 grains -1 grain is also a heap.
5. Following the logic that -1 grain does not change a heap, this could be repeated.
6. 9,998 -1 = heap, 9,997 -1 = heap, 9,996 -1 = heap etc
7. Eventually you will get to 1 grain -1 = heap. Which is not true.
8. Logical premises lead to a unsound conclusion. - this is the paradox

Lol. Thinking about it, it's constantly wrong.
