 This is essentially Anselm's perfect Island argument, and
was exploded centuries ago. Among other things, the reasoning is
circular--that is, it begins with the assumption of the existence
of God then by the use of that assumption seeks to prove it.
Can't you do any better then resorting to medieval theology?

 This argument carries no weight unless one assumes the
divinity of the Bible. Try again.
