How you think
Two brothers (X and Z) were in a forest and found a butterfly trapped in a spider's web. The spider begins to approach the butterfly, but then, X reaches to save it from the spider. As X tries to save the butterfly, Z crushes the spider. X becomes angry and asks Z why he killed the spider. Z replied that because X wanted to save the butterfly from the spider. X says that he wanted both of them to live. Z, who killed the spider, then said this species of spider can only eat butterflies or they will die of starvation, so by saving the butterfly, the spider would have died anyway.
Who do you think is right and why?
(There is no right or wrong answer, xz just wants to see how you think (not like I'm expecting the kind of answers I've seen so far from cbff))
Put your answer and reasoning in a spoiler so you don't ruin it for others

Z should have killed X too because he will keep trying to save butterflies from spiders. Gotta be efficient.

Really No ones ever heard this,Anyones yes I heard it,Its always A hack job attempt to make the foolish brothers who trys to save the butterfly kind hearted and have a sense of justice,Will the Guy who saves the spider and kills the butter fly is made out to look cruel and enjoy torture,

When in fact the anwser I mailed you is what some one who is cruel and enjoys torture would do.

Best course of action would be to scold your brother for messing with nature.

I too, have heard of this philosophical question before. In fact...

"If you keep saving butterflies, spiders will starve to death! But...wanting to save both is a contradiction. What would you rather do? Keep deliberating? The butterfly will be eaten in the meantime."
--Knives from Trigun, that is. If an Anime from the 90's had this concept, then ya, it's an old idea =P

Biologist have no room for "elegance" or "correct usage of English language"! MLA?! Blasphemer! We make our own format for our language!! APA! It's far less efficient or sensical! Perfect!

It's based more on the side of psychology than philosophy
A lot about a person is revealed depending on their reasoning
