Debate: The Euthyphro Dilemma (Flanagan Vs. Thibodeau)
CapturingChristianity: The Euthyphro Dilemma says that either God has reasons for his commands or He doesn’t. Take the second option. God has no reasons for His commands. Well then God’s commands are arbitrary–however, morality can’t be arbitrary. Now take the first option. God has reasons for His commands. Well then these reasons themselves are sufficient to give us moral obligations. No need for God. The Euthyphro Dilemma is meant to show that grounding morality in God is misguided. Jason argues that the Euthyphro Dilemma is sound, Matt argues it is not.
