    Is the following statement true?
    'This statement can't be confirmed to be true solely by utilizing
    a computer'


The following statement is without question true:

"Benjamin Jakubik cannot consistently assert this sentence"

A computer would have no difficulty in asserting this true statement, in fact every one of you is looking at a computer now doing that simple task right now, and yet there is no logical paradox that threatens to tear the universe apart; and yet a human being, Benjamin Jakubik, is unable to perform this task, a task that even the smallest computer can do with ease.

How would this work when it is the computer itself that is named and not some third party such as Ben?
