    Yeah. My thought is that killing one member of their crew simply extends the likelihood of slow starvation for the other two.

    You're choosing to not forsake anyone and hope that something happens before you all perish.
    What do you mean "the" don't forsake anyone?

    The bottom option to not forsake the "last guy" (throw his ass off the raft). Teamwork would fall under no one being forsaken right off the bat and taking the chance that something good, a boon of sorts, would come soon.

    Oh this is a poll thread? Mobil devices don't show polls.

    Are you using the app? Also, although it may be a little slower, I think you could take off the mobile site setting (if that's what you're referring to).

    But that's a stupid edit. So long as there are rational options, your whole moral question fails.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I would not forsake the last guy. Instead I would try to emulate this guy

    No, because everything possible and rational still falls under those two options. Forsake the last guy or don't.

    The format is that you choose one of those and then give your reasoning. It's direct so as to ensure NO miscommunication. He stated reasoning and left it at that (that reasoning resulted from the second option being chosen since everyone working as a team would mean the last guy was not forsaken). As such, you failed to correct me, my moral question and it's very direct options STAND. It is impossible for you to come up with a rational solution that would deviate from any of those two options outside of forsaking two members instead of just one (which is to be assumed irrational here since the raft can hold two people).

    ForumRunner and Tapatalk don't show polls, either. No big deal I'll cast my vote when I'm on my laptop later.
