# How many Lives is your Life Worth?

 Posts: 6,898 Add as FriendChallenge to a DebateSend a Message 11/20/2016 6:21:19 AMPosted: 1 year agoLet's say you're in some crazy scenario where it's either your life or another person's. You have a choice where either you live, but the other person dies, or you die and the other person lives. However, what if it's more than one person? Such as if you live then two other people die or three or four and so on. So, the question is: what is the max number of people would you let die so that you may live? Just one? Two? 100?

And it holds between 1 to 10 bullets .10 people will have to die before me.If the person can simply reload and you can't get to them .The amount of people that my life is worth is 1 more then the amount of bullets they have.I'm no gentleman when it comes to getting shot unfortunately.

 Posts: 5,139 Add as FriendChallenge to a DebateSend a Message 11/20/2016 3:53:40 PMPosted: 1 year agoThen there's question of letting people die. I'd give my life to save a child's, maybe a pretty girl's, probably anyone in my family, or maybe just someone I thought would do some good in the world (though I'd never sacrifice anyone else for a greater good). Letting people die is a weird question though. I'm probably not a very good person, I'm probably in fact wholly self-interested. I don't give blood, don't do charitable work, don't really help anyone out in any way at all. How many people am I letting die in that? What am I valuing greater than their lives? You know I think there's a sort of apathy in Christianity...: : : At 11/15/2016 6:22:17 PM, Greyparrot wrote: : That's not racism. Thats economics.
