    I may choose to throw everyone off, then once a person gets eaten by a shark or drowns, let everyone else back on. Let fate decide.

    They all die at once. Now you have to live with it. How many no win dilemmas can one come up with? You are on a spaceship when you hear a distress signal coming form enemy territory... (star trek, anyone?)

    Uhh, this is a pointless discussion if we're pretending to be Jesus. And "ethical dilemmas" with outlandish parameters are hardly worth discussing.

    I know! It's fun to make fun of the really crazy ethical dilemmas that are so contrived that I wouldn't be suprised if Aquaman showed up to save them. That's the thing, ethical dilemmas manufactured for a philosophical discussion seem to have to cut off any possibility of picking a different option. We're not pretending to put Jesus in it. That would make it even more pointless than if you inserted the Justice League and the Avengers and the Enterprise crew and every other fictional hero. Because Jesus is real and infinity more aewsome and powerful than any character we can make up.

    Maybe we should have this thread moved to a joke area so we can have fun poking holes into "ethical dilemmas"

    Yep. How about this, you only have enough water for one person, you have two dying of thirst, a Christian and an atheist. Who gets the water?

    If they're dying of thirst, bit too late for a drink of water. Call 911 and have paramedics give IV Ringer's lactate. :) Not to mention, the Christian would say to give it to the atheist. What's the context? How are you stuck somewhere with only a very small amount of water and no rescue?

    Raise up a tribe of Darth Executors with me as their pimp-king.

    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?
    I'd ask for a volunteer.

    I think they're worth discussing. They frequently mirror macro-management decisions many past and current leaders have to make. Like whether to go to war, which practically guarantees innocent people will die.

    Think he's reffering to the ones were the situation is designed on purpose to force you into an ethical dilemma.
