You assume I am human.
So does that mean you are a monkey? Only animal I know of who could possibly type. Tongue

RE: Sacrifice
I might be stupid, but since I already lived through one war as a kid, I think I would die for my country if duty called for it. Not so much "for my country", but for protecting those around me, family, friends... When I say "protect", I mean protect the place I live against any invaders, not go on the other side of the world, say I am protecting my country and die in some shithole where I don't even understand the language they speak.

Other than that, really not much more things/people to die for...

OR I was dipped in a pool of toxic waste as a baby and have developed super hero abilities and have evidently become some sort of ultra super mega super hero.
I mean you can believe what you want but at the end of the day, you never know...

STFU. Peeps trying to tell me my morality can stick their dick in a food processor. Tongue

Any fool can die for his Gwynnies. I live for my Gwynnies. So there it is.

RE: Sacrifice
Thinking about the story of Jesus, there certainly are circumstances in which one would sacrifice himself for the sake of humanity. Imagine if you were to do the same thing as Jesus and three days later you would just respawn like a Boss and ascend into heaven so that you can chill out on a cloud-couch with God and watch some football while drinking an ice cold beer.

I can honestly say, if the whole human race was gonna be wiped out unless I died, I still wouldn't sacrifices myself.

That's a bit selfish dont ya think??

Depends on the scale you use. On a human scale, sure it's selfish, but on a life scale, perhaps not.

If I were in a situation where suicide would save human kind, I would consider opting out, even if it meant my life in the end anyways. I'd have to consider whether keeping humans on thelanet, even to the detriment of the planet itself was worth it to me.

Basically you have to ask yourself, "is human life more valuable than life in general?"

Not really... What makes it have to be your own race? I would willingly sacrifice myself to save a different alien sentient race if I knew it would save them and their potential to befit the spreading of sentient life in the universe.

I think sentient life may be more valuable than other... I can't say for sure because we don't know if it really is special or we just have a slow evolving simpleton lifeform planet.

If I got to be Jesus? Oh yeah I would do it.. a little whipping and crucifixion is nothing compared to being co-ruler of everything afterwards.
