(ex-apologist) A Euthyphro to Craig’s Argument Against Atheist Significance, Meaning, and Purpose

LINK

I noticed this argument and found it worth sharing: 

1. Either (a) the purposes God sets for our lives are significant because God wills them, or (b) God wills them because they’re significant.

2. If (a), then what counts as a significant life is arbitrary.

3. If (b), then what counts as a significant life is independent of God

—————

4. Therefore, what counts as a significant life is either arbitrary or independent of God.
