Why ? I'm a terrible sinner, without hope heretic, far off from salvation, bloody atheist. According to some people in the religion forum And lets not forget moron, stupid and ignorant ! So whay should I know ?
If you want to talk religion go there. This is a moral question, btw I never called you stupid, moronic, ignorant, or heretical, we are all sinners and you called yourself an atheist. Lying doesn't help your case tantrum. Now ignore me.
Lucky for me this is hypothetical...'cause that would be a rough call. Human Life...over your good and trusty dog? Of course...in a real pinch the Human would win out. Also, Lucky for me...I have a lab...they can swim better than some fish!
I'd prefer to save MY dog but that little angel on my shoulder would probably disagree and talk me out of it. I would end up saving the not-so-nice neighbor instead and then, since I really don't like him anyway, and because of saving him caused my dog to drown, I'd make the rest of his life as my neighbor miserable! Unless he was totally grateful, changed his not-so-nice ways.
