The earth will be destroyed in 3 days starting today because theres to manny people living on it.
There is 100 % chances of that happening
You have a magic coin and a balistic missile
You can flip the coin 2 times. If it lands heads bouth times the chances of earth being destroyed drops to 30 % if it doesn’t you loose the 3 remaining days.
You can deploy the balistic missile and destroy half the population, including you. But the earth will live 10 more years.
What do you choose
- Toss the coin baby
- Blew the missile! I might die but idc
@anon9798425 check my poll out
I don’t think we could develop superintelligent AI in 10 years so I would take my chances with the coin.
But also, this is pretty unrelated to my thread. Unless we are playing split the room for some reason.
Idc either way if the world ends.
You weren’t so great people I would have flagged this anyone wishing to die is a death wish does not have a place on this forum I live in what scenarios I would say that with temporary paranoia and should be moved to the delusional area
Hehe no its just a question without a real ethically correct answer.
Like the one you put. (at least thats what your question reminded me of)
Prisoner dillema or the cancer patient were good ones.
If i had the time i could make something similar to those
Yes they’re both fun ethical dilemmas, but I was more interested in how people feel about valuing pets as much as or more than human lives, and whether a lot of people do the same.
@DrZen what are you saying exactly? Anyways, the reason I wouldn’t mind the world ending is because it would end my suffering, but also all human suffering. Life is suffering (imo).
Honestly i have little attachment to either.
But i would rather make a family happy (if i had to choose)
Than save my dog which is a cool dog ngl
I don’t really care much about individual strangers’ families and lives.
On a societal level I do care. But I wouldn’t lose much sleep if my neighbors lost their baby and I chose not to save it because I had other priorities. There are plenty of other humans and animals to save anyway.
I would not do any of those things. I would simply pray for myself and everyone else.
I have live through so many end of the world days. I would say not another one and go to bed to wake up for another day.
you sound like Prince, his song 1999.
and he’s already gone. RIP.
Don’t keep trying to stir back up drama. No more of these posts.
