A Critique of Recent Claims of a Solution to Zeno’s Paradoxes

Abstract

In a recently published paper it is concluded that there is a necessary trade off of all precisely determined physical values at a time for their continuity in time. This conclusion was based on the premise that there is not a precise instant in time underlying a continuous dynamical physical process. Based on the conclusion stated above, it was further asserted that three of Zeno’s paradoxes were solved. In the short critique following it is demonstrated that the conclusions in the paper were due to a non sequitur fallacy made in the reasoning employed. Causality issues found in the conclusion made are also explored. Both the conclusion and alleged solutions to Zeno’s paradoxes are then termed invalid.
