Obviously the following statement is 'False':
"This sentence contains Seven words".
So we correct the sentence by changing it to:
This sentence does not contain Seven words".
We know that the First statement is False and so now can we conclude that the Second statement is True ?
The second sentence is not in fact a correction of the first--it is a completely different sentence. As such, it is talking about
a different sentence. Therefore one is not a negation of the other, and therefore both can be false.
