    Ethical dilemmas

    How would Jesus solve the lifeboat problem(the one with an overcrowded lifeboat that's sinking)?

    We can't speak for Jesus but here, we can't rule out the possibility of a miracle.
    For what was given to everyone for the use of all, you have taken for your exclusive use. The earth belongs not to the rich, but to everyone. - Ambrose, 4th century AD

    All cruelty springs from weakness. - Seneca the Younger

    POint! That's the thing about the WWJD saying. Jesus could do anything to solve a problem. So, what would be good for us to do? Why do these lifeboat problems not have some one will to do an heroic sacrifice?

    You and 15 others are in a lifeboat which is now overloaded by the weight of one person. The water around you is surrounded by sharks. There is a island in the distance. You can't sacrifice yourself. What do you do? And for some reason, you are the only one who can make the choice and no one volunteers to die.

    Random innocent bystanders. And none of them are named Clark Kent, Bruce Wayne, or any other character that could get you out of this bind.

    Well if I have nothing to go on I will throw anyone who is not a young adult female off and head for the island with the rest hoping it's abandoned.

    What are you planning on doing? Don't even think about telling me. What if this was a simulation? You will be graded. Half are men, half are wome. Ages ranging from 16-60. Some are rich, others are poor. Who will you choose? What will this choice say about you?

    Any more ethical dilemmas? Feel free to create third options, but some would consider that to be cheating.
