RE: Human / animal Hybrids.....it's true!Jan 26th, 2005
Is the train question a test, absolutely, but rather a test to see what the person truly believes.
I guess I'll have to rephrase the question now to: "You come to a train track where a 3 year old stranger and your 10 year old pet are both lying on the track and unable to move. You are alone and unable to save both of them before the train arrives. One of them will be saved and the other will die. Who do you save??"
It's not a way to see if they conform to my beliefs, it either reinforces their own beliefs or causes them to stop and really think about what it is they believe.
