A contradiction occurs when two (or more) different statements on a topic cannot both be true at the same time and in the same sense. For instance, let's look at the statements "I am walking my dog," and "I am not walking my dog." Both statements cannot both be true at the same time and in the same way. They are mutually exclusive. However, the following is not a contradiction: "Bob saw two people get out of the 1967 black Camaro," and "Frank saw three people get out of the 1967 black Camaro." These statements are not mutually exclusive because both statements can be true at the same time. Bob may have been at an angle where he was only able to see two people, where Frank could have been at a different angle where he was able to see three people. Both statements can be true at the same time and in the same sense without excluding the other.
When critics of the Bible offer contradictions within its pages, they very often fail to examine the context and apply the
Law of non-contradiction
properly. A typical issue that the critics often cite as a contradiction is the manner of Judas' death. Did he die by hanging or by falling down? In

it says that Judas "went away and hanged himself." In Acts 1:16-19 it says "and falling headlong, he burst open in the middle and all his bowels gushed out." Critics will say this is a contradiction, but it is not since both statements can be true without excluding the other. Judas hanged himself; and then later his body fell, and his bowels gushed out. There is no contradiction since both statements are true, and neither negates the validity of the other.
As a matter of fact, I have been to Israel and have seen the area (Jerusalem) where Judas is said to have hanged himself. It is a rather steep hillside with trees growing near the top and with about a 30- to 60-foot drop under the trees--depending on the specific location. It makes perfect sense both factually and geographically to see that Judas both hanged himself; and later his body fell headlong, and his guts came out.
So when someone raises a Bible contradiction and wants you to solve it, first ask him what a contradiction is. If he offers a competent definition, then apply it to the alleged contradiction. You'll find that the Bible has no contradictions. If, however, you are not able to make sense of the issue, then tell the person that you will do some research and get back to him. There's nothing wrong with that.
There might be nothing to ever equal the unbridled joy of bringing home a new dog. As the pup races around its new home smelling the thousands of smells that live in its new abode, it's hard not to share the excitement. Then the real work starts — training your new pooch.
As artificial intelligence continues to develop, concerns grow about its invasive nature and reach. How much are we willing to cede to the machines, and what effect will that have on our lives?

The U.S. Customs and Border patrol, pointing to federal law, says it has the right to board and conduct warrantless searches in any vehicle within a hundred miles of the U.S. border. Given Vermont's small size and its northern border with Canada, that means that a significant portion of Vermont falls within that zone. The ACLU of Vermont has joined the chapters of several states asking Greyhound to stop allowing agents to board its buses and ask passengers questions about their citizenship.
