Quick poll here on a classic moral dilemma. A runaway train is approaching a switch point in the track. As the train approaches, the switch is set so the train will continue along the main track. You are standing beside the switch and can, if you choose, flip the switch. If you flip the switch, the train will divert onto a side track. On the main track, a some way beyond the switch point, three railway workers are standing on the tracks. On the side track, one worker is standing on the track. If you do not flip the switch, the 3 workers on the main track will surely be hit by the train. If you do flip the switch, the 1 worker on the side track will surely be hit by the train. Assume that all the workers are strangers to you, that they are oblivious to the oncoming train, that you cannot warn them or move them off the tracks before the train hits them, etc. Considering only the factors given here, do you flip the switch, or not? You have only seconds to make your choice. I'll explain why this is the in Religion forum rather than Ethics after we have some responses.
