    If someone was trying to kill you with a knife, would you kill the person in order to stop them?

    Thats if they were putting up a fight.

    For starters I would never kill a human, I would rather die.

    So that would be a no.

    But what is your view? What do you say?

    if you'd rather die than end him, and hes got a knife, i'm sure he can facillitate this wish. :rolleyes: very naieve and self-destructive ideology.

    I would do whatever I needed to in the situation to stay alive,life is too good to throw away for someone who is that bad.

    Until you're in that situation you will never know, same goes for the original poster, the survival instinct can be very strong.

    I voted no, but only because I wouldn't really WANT to kill them. I don't think I'd be able to take a life too easily, no matter the circumstances.

    But I'll have no idea how I'll react when put in that situation until it happens... hopefully not though. :eek:

    We humans can be very hard or very easy to kill. But once you do take someones life you too can look forward to any combination of broken sleep, violent dreams, binge drinking, depression and aggresive or irational behaviours. Big boys games, big boys rules, big boys stakes.

    i think my folks do need me alive and it would be better than have them visit me in the cemetery. So I think I'd take a life in order to save mine

    I like your sig G. ;)

    I have never been in a situation where i might have to kill to live, so its hard to say. But maybe its just a natural reaction to kill someone in that situation so id say yes without any experience.

    We'll never know if I would kill or not, until I am threatened.
    I like to think, though, that I didn't waste my money on dojo tuition.

    if someone tried to kill me and there was no other way i would kill...
    if a bear attacked me and i had to kill it to save myself why wouldn't i do the same with a person?

    If my only option were to fight someone armed with a knife and they were intent upon causing me bodily harm I would do whatever I could to defend myself. I would not be looking to kill the person, but then again I doubt their wellbeing would even register on me until the situation was over. Having been attacked a couple of times in my life I've never found that I'm too contemplative in the midst of an unexpected violent encounter.

    If the only way to preserve my life was to end another, then I would. Hopefully, I'll never be in that situation.

    I would, given little alternative.

    I would prefer not to, but in the event of being attacked by a knife then I would take whatever means necessary to safeguard myself or family. I refuse to kill in cold blood (theoretically ;) ), but legitimate self-defense is another matter altogether.
