Topic: The value of life...

Basiclly, i have been looking at the news a lot lately, and noticed some pretty odd things.

Well everyone basiclly knows about Hurricane Katrina, right? This caused much flooding, collapsed buildings, and plenty of deaths. People are also not supposed to be out of their homes due to electric poles falling into large masses of waters within the streets, in which could severely electricute them and kill them.

During natural disasters like such, no one truly cares about the deaths, am i right? Only those who have lost people, and those with a kind heart.
As i was watching the CNN yesterday, all they spoke was of the money, and how much they lost in damages, and how much they would need to repair them, their estimates, and how long. They even had an insurance company man come in and speak of it. Seriously? Isnt speaking of the lives lost more important then money?
Another example, during the rare tornado warning in toronto, the one good moment when the people of toronto needed feedback for the tornado, whether or not it would touch down..etc. There was a man speaking of condo's.-.-


My questions are..
What does life mean to you?
Why do you value life?
Do you value the life of others?
Do you chose the life of a person, a complete stranger, over money?

The value of life is in achieving a ceratin aim, which is desiganted by yourself. In other case it'll be just life without any value, I think so.

Life my life means nothing to me, but the life of my closest friends and relatives are important.

I don't value my life.

I only value the lives of my closest friends, and my loving family.

In truth, I would choose the life of another. There are numerous benefits to saving someone's life.

Life is us, theres no life without us, i value it cause of my friends and father, we only live one time, and its a shorter time, theres a purpose to it. My friends life is more important than mine, my life with them is nothing, i already lost one important person to me, i don't want to lose more, and like they don't want to lose it too, i try to value mine. Money can give us lots of thing, but it can never give us a friend. This is my opinion, i have no regrets on it. Take care.
Nice thread by the way, the way people nowadays live, is always about money, its true that without it we can't live is this world, but theres no money that can buy u. Take care.

you make a really sad point there about the news focusing on the economics side of these disasters, especially the repetitive comments about the inevitable rise in gas prices across the country... >.<
but i'm gonna take a more hopeful stance on these newscasters and give them the benefit of the doubt...maybe they need to wait for things to settle down there before they can find people to interview for more human interest segments. let's hope we'll see the more human side to these newscasts.
and now to your very difficult and thought provoking questions...
What does life mean to you?
life to me is precious and priceless. i'm so thankful that my luved ones and i are alive and for the most part healthy. i know we sometimes take this for granted, but we really should be thankful that we are here and shouldn't waste this wonderful gift.
Why do you value life?
i guess it's just the fact that it's so amazing that we are here to begin with.
and i also value the lives of my family and friends.
Do you value the life of others?
most definitely! we are so interconnected with other people that we don't even realize the impact we have on other people and that is a wonderful thing. and my life is no more valuable than someone else's so of course i value the lives of others.
Do you chose the life of a person, a complete stranger, over money?
yes, of course, because life is priceless and no amount of money can replace the value of someone else's life...even a complete stranger!

Don't worry about tomorrow, don't think about yesterday,
don't live in the future, just make it through today!

(My) Life doesn't mean anything to me. I do value the lives of others. I would choose the life of a person over money any day. I think the life of a person is way more important than money, but your going to have people who value dollar signs over life, and that's just sad. I don't care for such people. Frankly I never will.

Life means nothing. It has no meaning otehr than survival and the animalistic tendecnies humans have.

i don't value life too much. I take interest in my own but others not so much. This is the view of most Americans otherwise there'd be like free health care for all. But most people are too cheap to pay for the increase in taxes to pay for it.

I don't value the life of others only my own. I don't expect others to value my life but if they want to...


Stranger's life or money? Hmm....I think I would go with the money. I mean I wouldn't be guilt-ridden since I don't know them or know people who would be affected by them.

Also although life may or not be a gift from God (depends on whether or not you're an athiest which I am) sometimes the gift is pretty crappy sometimes. Think of all the murders, rapes, and generally terrible things that happen to good people. And what about Katrina. It is a part of life and therefore you think it's a gift?!?!?! Heck no! What if someone gave you a really shiny looking bomb as a gift? It's really shiny so it must be nice right? Wait til that counter goes to zero and then we'll see.

In short I believe life is life. There's no moral or ethical things behind it. Everything else is just a human response to explain why hurricanes happen to good people and etc.

i seem a bit crazy don't I?

life means a lot to me. it's a chance for me to live my life the way i want it.
i value life because it's valuable....you only live once
yes, i do value the lives of others. everyone's life is precious.
i would choose the life of a person, compared to money, because as long as you live, you still have the chance to make a difference in someone else's life.

I am a suicidal person so i dont value my own life but i do value the life's of other eg. girl I love, friends etc.

and as to the question about money it depends on the stranger is he a hobo(homeless), hot girl etc. I'm really shallow I think

1.Life Means Everything To Me, There's Nothing More Impotant Than A Human Life Not Economy Not Jewlery Not Anything In The World!
2.I Value Life Because It Is What Keeps Us Alive (Everyone Already Knows This), And Also Because A Human Cannot Come Alive Again It Is Impossible To Bring A Human Life Back.... Unlike Money, Personal Objects, Buildings, Etc. (Which Can Be Easly Replaced)
3.Yes, I Value The Life Of Everyone.....Even My Enemies.....
4.Yes, I Would Rather Save A Total Stranger Than "Money" (Money Is The Source Of Greedyness)

Well first of all. People only care about someone dying (I mean really care) if they know that person. It's the way of the world. Crazy yet it makes so much sense. Answering your q's now.

1)A lot
2)Because you only get one. (But I beleive in ressurection y'know so I'm not gonna put this part out of parentheses)
3)Yeah. Sometimes.
4)Depends. How much money and how important is the stranger. It may sound cruel but it's how things work nowadays.

hum..... my personnal religion is life, so those who died are of no interest to me, i'm more interested in bringing comfort and happyness to the living ones. and it's hard for me that the living find happyness through helping the dead, which is only done because they want to feel alive and not dead. if you really loved someone, you don't need to mourn them, you'll just give the exceed of love and life to others around you.

the problem with your example is that it's kinda contradictory with your questions : i'll sure choose the life of someone else above any money, but if this someone else's dead (like in your example), take the money and give it to the living to rebuild their house, buy food and keep living safe.
