1. ## Hypothetical Questions

1. There is a button in front of you:
If you push it, a child dies. If you don't, everyone dies. What is your choice?

2. You drive a train and both rails have people tied to it: One has five people and one has one person. Which rail would you choose?
2#. The one person on the rail is a king who can stand harsh criticism and actually loves his people. And the other 5 are the richest people in the kingdom who would regularly spare 10% of their money to the poor.
Which rail would you choose?

3. A god appears in front of you and offers you a deal:
If you choose to die, everyone in the world would be free from incurable diseases. Would you accept this deal?

4. Here's a compulsory choice:
#1 You were given the ability to create any kind of creature you like. However, for every creature you create, a random existing species goes extinct and your new one thrives.
#2 You were given the ability to use psychic powers. However, your lifespan decreases twice as fast when you are using the powers.
Which one would you choose?

5. You are a tomb robber and you found two treasures, but taking both of them would result immediate death due to a curse.
Here are the treasures:
#1. A machine that could make money at the cost of one dollar for one second of your lifespan.
#2. A staff that allows you to make a world you desire but you only have one chance.
Which one would you choose? (You cannot leave without one due to the death curse)

2. 1)I will press the button,so everyone except the child (rip) is safe,if I press it everyone including the child dies
2)AAAAAA maybe the one with one person,very hard question
3)I will not kill myself,I will find ways to prevent those diseases and weaken the disease

3. I would answer all of those questions with having the least people be injured or die.

So I would have the child die in question one, because it would mean that everybody else would be safe. The 1 person on the rail would be pretty unlucky, because I would rather have one person die than 5. Zero hesitation on question 3 if it would mean that nobody would have to live with illness/disease. My life, though nice to have, is not as important as I feel billions of people's health is.

4. Yes
Yes
Win-win soo YES

5. 1, press the button
2,one person
3,yes

6. Here's a new one that I just thought of:

Same as No.2, but the one person on the rail is a king who can stand harsh criticism and actually loves his people. And the other 5 are the richest people in the kingdom who would regularly spare 10% of their money to the poor.

7. (1) The first question is IMO quite obvious. If you kill everyone, the child will not be able to just start a new human race or something - there isn't any humans left to reproduce, nor any parents to take care of them. Sure, the child will die - but for the good of humanity.

(2) One death's better than five. There's no need to kill more lives that necessary.
(2#) A leader who is capable in leading a kingdom to glory is indubitably more important compared to five wealthy Samaritans. Sure, they help the poor - but that's that. A great monarch would let a kingdom prosper better compared to some wealthy good-

(3) No. Diseases are there to balance out the increasing birth rate. Sounds immoral - I know.

8. 1. Child b'gone.

2. Spare the king. I greatly respect the people who can take criticism, and I'd imagine if he truly does love his people he could accomplish a lot more than the richest people.

3. Assuming this is the Christian God, and as long as I get to go to Heaven, I'd take the deal.

4. This one's very easy for me, I could finally make dragons a reality!
also I suppose I could just re-create any species I caused to go extinct given my newfound powers
Don't really see much point/use for psychic powers either.

#2 You were given the ability to use psychic powers. However, your lifespan decreases twice as fast when you are using the powers.
Which one would you choose?
1. I will choose the child, however I will never let go of the regret, only feeling that I murdered that child
2. I'd let the rich people die, they might spare their money, but a king who loves his people can help his kingdom many more times than they can, again I'd feel regret at their death, but I must choose. If I am a strong person, I would stop the train myself to make sure no one dies.

3. Yes and no, If the world is free from incurable diseases, the population which is inflating will start inflating at an even greater pace, disease is an immoral choice but it'll keep the fewer people who are left happy. Poverty would become an even greater issue and now I don't wanna get into arguments, but the fewer people there are, the better it is. My death is a small factor to consider in this, in the end, its all about which option is right.
4. I have a great respect for animals and stuff, without them, our civilization can never thrive, so it feels wrong to kill a species in order to create a new one. Sure, I might do it if the species I create is an ideal version of the previous one.
5. Use them only in need, or when helping others. I will use them when I must, that is all.

10. A god appears in front of you and offers you a deal:
If you choose to die, everyone in the world would be free from incurable diseases. Would you accept this deal?

If I’ll end up having some space in Heaven, sure.

Which one would you choose?
1. Definitely kill the one child rather than my whole family, the human race and all the other 2 billion children.

2. I would stop the train.

3. No, because nothing matters if I'm dead anyways, and science is progressing at a fast rate, so I'd just kill myself for no reason.

4. 1, because I'd create mini-Growtopians in real life.

12. The one button, since if I don’t everyone else dies...

The king/1 Person since he most likely has harsh criticism for a reason...

Since all diseases are technically cureable with time, I would deny the request (Also over population would kill us faster)

I would want the create any species I choose, since, get this, I can create a species of creatures/plant that work with my genetic code, and only my genetic code to give me, and only me phsycological powers without any negative effects (Besides that one other species dying).(Unless I kill off mosquitos)

13. New question uwu

14. 1. wat, this question makes no sense
2. My allegiance is to the Republic, to democracy!
3. Accept, win/win situation jk
4. #2 and never use it
5. neither lmao

Which one would you choose? (You cannot leave without one due to the death curse)
1) push it but if possible I will save everyone
2) stop the train if cant ill choose the lane with the king
3) maybe if there is no cure
4) I will choose the first choice since when I create a new spesies the other spesies will extinct therefore the ecosystem is still balanced
5)I will choose the second choice which is the staff since the money machine will only create maximum of 1.89216 billion and that requires 60 years of my life and I would not have the chance to enjoy it if I pick the staff I can remove human from the earth since human have been breaking the environment and using all the mineral that we can find in the earth.
