If the world was to end tomorrow, would you want to know now?
Well I think I see your point. How about: If the world was going to end tomorrow would you want to know today? I don't know how I missed that.Originally posted by Mentat
I find the form of this question rather paradoxical. Of course, this isn't the Philosophy Forum, so I wouldn't harp on some small mistakes or anything, but this one really makes the question unanswerable to me. How is it possible for me - at the time when the world was going to end soon - to choose whether I want to know about it or not? That'd be like asking, "if you were about to get wacked on the forehead, would you want to know about it?", why should I even ask if I didn't already suspect it?

How about this? Assume that I know when the world will end. I am telling you that it could be tomorrow. Do you want to know for sure?Originally posted by Mentat

So, basically, you are asking, "if there were someone capable of telling you whether the world would end tomorrow or not, would you ask her?", right?
Okay then, yes. I don't much care for the idea of the world coming to an end without my having done at least some of the things I've wanted to do.Originally posted by Ivan Seeking
