Many of you argue that no objective morality exists. Right and wrong are subjective categories. Great.
Pretend we're all in an airplane. The engines explode. We're heading straight to the ground, and will be dead in around 70 seconds.
Given this scenario, how do you object in any meaningful way to a fellow passenger taking those last few seconds to murder the nearest person? Does it make a difference?
Here's a different question if you prefer: Should we have stopped the Holocaust?
Possibly the greatest war in human history was waged to stop the Nazis. Thousands of innocent soldiers were lost in the endeavor... and I can reasonably expect every single holocaust survivors to be dead anyway by the time I'm married. So what was the point? To postpone the inevitable and pretend it makes a difference?
