- I can be certain of nothing other than the fact I exist
- This being the case, everyhting I have experienced may just be a dream or halucination caused by Satan
- This would be bad
- Therefore, God exists to stop Satan giving me nightmares.
2. I perceive that God exists.
3. Therefore, God exists.
Yes, it's that stupid.

2. Therefore, God is necessary (Modal logic demands it!)
3. Therefore, God exists. Of course, the initial premise is just that, a premise. Alexander Pruss, however, has come up with a way of fixing that: 1. Ninth Century Indian philosopher Samkara said that if something is impossible, then we cannot have a perception of it.
1a. Ninth Century Indian philosophers, being Ninth Century Indian Philosophers, can be presumed, a priori, to be right. 2. I perceive that God is necessary.
2a. Therefore, God is possibly necessary.
3. Modal ontologic argument!
5. Therefore, God exists.
