Here's a little quiz :>


A group of children were playing near two railway tracks, one still in use while the other disused. only one child played on the disused track, the rest on the operational track.

The train came, and you were just beside the track interchange. You could make the train change its course to the disuse track and save most of the kids.

However, that would also mean the lone child playing by the disused track would be sacrificed. or would you rather let the train go its way?


Now pause for a moment and think wisely.......


No peeking ;]

i'll just tell the kids to go away!!!!!!!!!!!!..:))or maybe the train will stop....

but if i really have to choose...>>>
i'll changed the course and sacrifice the lone child, it's only one life compared to a group of life (that contains how many?)
if your a christian and know the story of Jesus Christ dying on the cross, God sacrifice His only child to save the life of many.

there's a story similar to this, but a little different. there was a father who only had one child and his playing on the bridged. the bridged is movable(you know the one that goes up and down.) his child was playing on the end of the bridged and a train is coming which contains many life. the father is the controller of the bridged, he could make the bridged go up or not. now he have to choose, his child or the train with lots of people in it... i believe the father choose the train with many people aboard... the story was a representation of what God did to the people when He sacrificed his only Son, Jesus...

though, since this story is little diff. it might be diff. too.. :))

now that i think about it there were this used and disued tracks...

ok...

the one on the spoiler's point is right, but i can't say it's absolutely right... the answer on the spoiler is a logical answer to the problem and choosing to divert the train's course would be answering the problem in an emotional way... i don't think that's about the majority or popular one.... i think it's just people answering this kind of problem in what they think would lessen the lives they have to lose and not really thinking about the possibilities of the track being unsafe and the kids' knowledge of the used track... and i admit i'm one of them...

now for the logical answer it's said on the spoiler that the decision is to just let the train go since the disused track might not be safe and because the kid's played at the operational track that they should have known the track is used...

there are two other answers for this one is in a moral way: i know i've mentioned this before but well, if your a christian and know about God sacrificng His only Son for the life of many... those many are sinners, they didn't believe Jesus and sinned a lot still God sacrifice His only Son so they could be save and diversing the course would sacrifice the lone child's life even if the group of kids who played at the operational track should have known that the track is in use....

the second one is the what if way: which is contrary to the logical answer, what if the track was safe? what if the kid's didn't know the track was in used?

there's a lot of flaw in this problem one is do the person choosing the solution for the problem know how to operate the track? does the track interchange even work?

but i guess it's just about it's thought provoking question to what to choose... :))

but when people think of solutions to problem they should think about it with all the possibilities possible and knowing the consequences not only thinking about it morally, emotionally or logically.... i think there's no right choice in all the problems people faced everyday, there's only other choices and if the chooser didn't like the outcome they got to be strong and deal with the consequences....

thanks for the thought provoking problem you shared... and it seems like my parents (who are arguing at my back) is facing a problem solved in a decision they didn't like...:)) i feel like crying!!
