Evil as Evidence for God's Existence

1. If God does not exist, objective moral values do not exist.

2. Evil exists.

3. Therefore, objective moral values exist (some things are evil!).

4. Therefore, God exists. [1]

For those interested in learning about what makes a good argument, see here.

I love this argument and believe it has a deeper meaning than it appears! The trick is to be able to explain WHY objective morality cannot exist without God, and once that is established, this argument is flawless.
