Ok, this test/questionnaire on torture is fun.

Posted by

Who said torture can’t be fun? Certainly not Dick Cheney (Rim shot! Thank you, thank you. I’ll be here all week.) I was fully set to title this post Torture Thursdays, but that is probably in bad taste and I want people to keep reading this website.

Anyway, the blog at Talking Philosophy has tracked down some interested facts and figures on torture and how people respond. They have also collected a few links to some debates and conversation between Sam Harris and Richard Dawkins on the topic as well. Also, on this blog is an interesting test that you can take. It asks you a few questions about how you view morality and then gives you a few scenarios in which you can respond based on your answers to previous questions. Fun!

Maybe this isn’t how you wanted to spend the 10 minutes you are giving to TPQ right now, but check it out. Who doesn’t love a fun torture themed brain teaser? I know I do.

So, go and answer the question, “Should you kill the fat man?”
