Arguing God from Being?

This ontological and much-debated argument for God's existence claims that a 'Perfect Being' must exist because 'existence' is a perfection. The newer 'Modal Ontological Argument' claims that if a 'Necessary Being' could conceivably exist—in any possible world—a Necessary Being (being 'necessary' by definition) would have to exist.
