Its not an evasion. You said the point of the imaginary scenario was to compel confrontation. Meaning you want people who otherwise oppose torture to question that value if torturing someone were guaranteed to save lives. I don't for the reason I specified in my last post. Obviously the imaginary problem doesn't yield the result you were hoping for.
Then you are afraid.

It's freaking weird to me that people that involve themselves in torture many times strip their victim naked and mess their junk. What the **** is that about? I suppose in this case they just stripped him naked from the waist down and chained outside to freeze to death, but still, why strip him half naked? WTF? Hell, when they used to execute people they would cut the genitals off, and again, wtf is that about? Bunch of ****ing weirdos if you ask me.
It is a problem created by law professor Alan Dershowitz. A nuclear weapon has been placed in New York City. It has been found, but it is set to detonate in one hour. It will detonate instantly if moved. The detonation can be prevented only with a code known only to the bomb maker, who is in custody. If it detonates the bomb will kill at least one million people. Do you torture the bomb maker to learn the code?
Nope. That took less than a second to answer. Your man Alan Dershowitz perhaps needs to know some of us aren't immoral filth.
