Boredom and the Idea’s it brings

Its late at night and I’m bored. While attempting desperately to cure my boredom I start surfing the net. I run across something called Liar paradox. It goes a little something like this.

This statement is false. (A)
If (A) is true, then “This statement is false” is true. Therefore (A) must be false. The hypothesis that (A) is true leads to the conclusion that (A) is false, a contradiction.
If (A) is false, then “This statement is false” is false. Therefore (A) must be true. The hypothesis that (A) is false leads to the conclusion that (A) is true, another contradiction. Either way, (A) is both true and false, which is a paradox.”

I started thinking about this deeply. I mean why not I’m bored. These are some the crazy conclusions I came to. Warning: the following may sound very stupid. You have been warned

The person saying “This statement is false” is a lair.  A lie can never be true or else it wouldn’t be a lie, therefore the content of the sentence should not matter, be disregarded, and be automatically labeled as false. In sort I’m not saying Its false that “This statement is false” (which would make it a true statement creating the paradox). I’m saying even if a paradox arises this statement should always be considered false because the nature of a lie is untruthful. In math it’d be like an exception to the rule. Many equations have them. The whole reason it doesn’t work is because you cant assign truth with a lie. That makes no sense.

The second type of liar paradox I came across was this.

“The following sentence is true.
The following sentence is true.
The following sentence is true.
The first sentence in this list is false”.

Now….. if its “true” the first sentence in this list is false then doesn’t that just make the first sentence “Truly false”, making it a absolute statement, meaning its always false no matter what?  After the first time reading those four sentences there’s no use in reading through it again. Yea… the person who made this would probably give me the middle finger and say no that’s not how you do it but I would like to believe my point still stands!
