Now consider this dilemma: Either something is morally right because god makes it so, or god makes it right because it is moral. If something is right because a god makes it so, then god could possibly change it for all we know , and then the right could instead be the wrong. A different mode of criticism is now needed. I think that a second dilemma can be applied to demolish this theological strategy. Some of those debates especially in Book Five bring up the modern problem of evil: How could a perfect, all-good God permit evil in the world?
