New research shows that people would sacrifice one person to save a larger group of people – and in addition, the force with which they carry out these actions could be predicted by psychopathic traits.

The study, led by the University of Plymouth, compared what people ‘said’ they would do with what they actually ‘did’ by comparing a questionnaire with actions in immersive moral dilemmas created using virtual-haptic technologies (i.e. using a robotic device which measures force, resistance, and speed, whilst simulating the action of harming a human).

In several dilemmas, participants had to decide whether to sacrifice a person by performing a harmful action against them, in order to save a larger group of people.

While all individuals were more likely to sacrifice others in these immersive environments than in questionnaire-based assessments, people with strong psychopathic traits were more likely to generate these harmful actions with greater physical power. (1)

Decline in religion, decline in morality.

People tend to believe they are gods today. Gods able to decide who can live and who will die. But everyone dies. God is not God because He can save some from death. But because he can love them even though they do die. As bodies and as souls. God is there not to kill a person in order to save many.

It takes the devil to decide to act…

It takes a devil to do something and save someone…

Because most of the times you will kill another person at the same time…

At the end, it takes a human not to act.

It takes a human to be God…
