    Dawkins thinks a non-existent God who created universes is better than an existing God who creates universes. But that is logically incoherent because there is no possible universe in which a non-existent being exists.

    This is not my most favorite proof, since I prefer my resurrection proof using the Minimal Facts Approach and the 4 Step Proof for God, but the ontological is the most elegant.

    The Ontological Argument (The Nature of Existence or Being)
    1. It is possible that a maximally great being exists (omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, and morally perfect in every possible world). Hence atheism is false. The basic meanings are Atheism is the word in the English language to claim God does not exist. Agnosticism is the word in the English language to say one is not sure.
    2. If it is possible that a maximally great being exists, then a maximally great being exists in some possible world (eventually you would come to a world with a maximally great being because there would be an infinite number of possibilities).
    3. If a maximally great being exists in some possible world, then it would exists in every possible world (true by definition, because part of being maximally great is to exist in every possible world).
    4. If a maximally great being exists in every possible world, then He or She exists in the actual world.
    5. If a maximally great being exists in the actual world, then a maximally great being exists.
    6. Therefore, a maximally great being exists.
