From the Paper:

"The Euthyphro Dilemma has became a very popular stage for debate among many philosophers, professors, and religious groups. The Euthyphro Dilemma stems from Plato's writing The Euthyphro in which the philosopher Socrates proposes a timeless question concerning religion and God. Socrates essentially asks is something good because God recognizes it as good or because God commands it. This question brings much debate into many religions and has been used as artillery by some against others. Atheist have taken this concept and used it as a direct argument to the concept of believing in God and the idea of the Divine Command Theory. Christians and Atheist both have very differing views on this topic and its relevance, the religious groups clash at many times on this questioning of God and have taken opposing sides."
