This template will categorize tagged articles into Category:Self-contradictory articles.

After posting this template

Please start a section on the article's talk page to discuss and specify the specific section that contradicts itself. The third optional parameter is the name of a specific section on the specified talk page.

It is possible to specify the subject about which the article or section is contradictory with the optional parameter about.

Example of use
{{Contradict|about=the cause of death|date=October 2014}}

This renders as:

Adding the optional text |section or |article specifies whether the whole article or one section is contradictory.

Examples of use
{{Contradict|section|date=October 2014}}


{{Contradict|about=the cause of death|article|date=October 2014}}


  • The date-substitution template may be used to automatically generate the date, e.g., {{Contradict|{{subst:DATE}}}}. See Help:Substitution for more information.
  • The |date= parameter need not be added by the editor: if not entered, a bot will soon add it. The date parameter consists of the full English name of the current month with initial capital, a space, and the year, not full dates; e.g., "January 2013", but not "jan13". Any deviation from these two rules will result in an "invalid date parameter" error.
