The twenty-second installment of my original series, "Discovering Religion". In this two part episode I examine the concept of moral absolutes and ultimately where our sense of right and wrong is derived. To illustrate this concept, I pose two question to theists:

"Why is adultery immoral?" and "Would it be moral to kill your child if God command you to?"

If morality is solely derived from God, do theists believe actions are right or wrong merely because God says so? These questions serve to highlight a famous philosophical debate found in the "Dialogs of Plato", known as the Euthyphro Dilemma.

If it is possible to know something is wrong, despite the fact God has commanded it, then where is one's sense of morality truly derived?
