Default Re: how many people would you kill to save your child\'s life?

Impossible to answer until you face the question, but I would guess it would be either 0 or ~6billion.

i think this thread might have been done before, but not in this forum. You can push a button and it will kill a bunch of random or your child dies. What is the highest number of people you would kill to save your child?

Stop advocating murder through insane plots that have nothing to do with reality.

2.73 or 6 or 24.548 or maybe 7.438. Also I guess collateral damage would need to be considered so take the square root of each number and multiply by 3.11116 and divide by .92413.

A machine once built that tries to murder your child unless it murders a random number of other people and you are somehow in control of the number generator?

And you are seriously asking me what this does not have to do with reality?

how am i advocating murder?

[/ QUOTE ]

1. Make people believe that life is about kill or be killed; and leave this assumption unquestioned.

2. Portray aggression as self-defense.



It's a standard collectivist tool.

Dude, you are seriously a lunatic. It's called a throught experiment, of course it isn't set in "reality". You pick the dumbest times to be a nit.
