    But he's so damn courteous that Jesus is going to have to make an exception! Also, this anteater was never given a reason to believe (no event nor rationalization has lead this anteater to religion), which Jesus would have to explain to him.

    Um, I would refuse to answer the man's question.

    So, you can conceal the truth, but you cannot lie.

    Okay. This is important. You are bound and he has a knife to your throat. If you refuse to answer, he kills you. He won't kill you if you tell him where his target is. If you lie, he'll still believe you're telling the truth, and let you go.

    So... Tell him the truth and be free. Tell him a lie and be free. Tell him nothing and die. Which is it?

    Hmm, I think it says somewhere in the bible that all anteaters are blasphemers, and blasphemers are sinners, and sinners burn in hell.


    SINNERS!!!!!

    In theory, I would love to go out like Socrates, but in all probability I would lie and save two lives, oh well. Your scenario is also too extreme and hence easy, any sane human being, regardless of how rational/kind/moral they are, would do the same, I'd think.

    The concept is more important than the practical circumstance. You already told me what I need to know. Push comes to shove, you'd rather lie than let that person die.

    I could also infer that you'd rather live than tell the truth, realistically speaking. But that is not as solid a presumption due to the circumstances.

    You are not like Kant.
