      Hi everyone. I thought some of you might be interested in reading
      this article that was posted at TheologyOnline.com called, "A
      Christian Answer to Euthyphro's Dilemma."

      In case you're not familiar with Euthyphro's Dilemma, it's a
      philosophical argument that atheists like to use to claim that
      morality cannot flow from God, because any absolute moral standard is
      either a) arbitarily commanded by God, in which case even murder
      would be OK if He said so, or b) a moral standard external to God
      would exist, which would mean that some being is superior to Him.

      This particular answer to the dilemma proves that only the Christian
      deity (a triune god) can objectively know that an absolute moral
      standard exists, because of the consistent, eternal witness within
      the Godhead. In other words, Allah could not know for sure that he
      was good.

      Interesting stuff. Check it out!
