Aside from Aquinas' five ways this form of argument is after thousands of years, still one of the best.

It doesn't work as an argument.

But I should take some time to appreciate its beauty and subtelty.

Descartes tried a version where

A cause is always greater than its effect
I have the concept of god as an all powerful all perfect omnipotent being
Thus there must be AT LEAST as much perfection etc in the cause.
