    From my perspective this decision seems incredibly difficult but extremely obvious so allowing a billion people to die, for a completely selfish cause has absolutely no reasonable justification. However I'm not a parent, children is your everything, the reason you live everyday so if you're so manipulated by the love for your child that you're not unable to see this from a bigger perspective I understand.

    If you care that much about your woman, you would probably care 10 times more about a child.

    "Prevent" as in fight on the front lites? Or "Prevent" as in "sacrificed in a weird ritual and thus ending the chance of a nuclear war in the near future."?

    Because if it's the former, screw that. If it's the latter whereing my child dies in exchange for 90% of the world not becoming an irradiated wasteland for the next thousand years, yeah, I'd do that.

    Well either way the kid and the rest of us are probably going to die from this war so I would just keep my kid and watch the world burn while telling my son/daughter "you see kid, this is why we can't have nice things".

    In the end, we're all going to die anyways, so I figure I should just sit back, and watch the world born. Spend the final moments with my first born instead of sacrificing them.

Because I doubt any kid would want to live in a dead world never to experience anything greater than the daily fight for survival.

    You should think about what would happen to the kid. The kid would have to live his/her life knowing that he/she was the reason theres no longer any life left. Then after a while you (the parent) would die and the kid would be forced to wander the wastelands by herself. So by saving your kid you would essentially condem him/her to a living hell.

    Also let me say that I hate kids but I don't doubt I would love my own more than anything in the world. However there is a limit to what you can do for your kid.

    Btw in order to do this must mean you value your self and your kids life (however empty it maybe) over the life of billions. That to me is crazy.
    Your failure to read is amazing.....I said people who had children and then say they hate even their own are shit people.
