I'm not sure I'd credit this argument to any particularly thought out argument for god. This really reads to me like a 'God exists because stuff' argument. Metacrock and I used to bitch at each other over far better points than what this rests on.

After reading the article and its comments, the idea seems to be that reality requires a base that is immutable and immortal from which objects arise and return in their temporary existence. 
Except things don't cease to exist.  People, planets, stars - they die and decay, but their particles still exist.  And that's this guy's god. the basic material of the universe - which, as I understand it, is 'force'.
Use it wisely, you must.

I think this is following "A creation proves a creator." line of reasoning, which the OP title doesn't really seem to properly indicate. ...
I'd say it derives more from the Ontological argument.
Ah yes, if it exists in the mind it must exist in reality. Because that always made sense ???

It sounds like a pathetic attempt at pantheistic solipsism.
There is light and darkness in the world, to be sure.  However, there's no harm to be had in walking in the shade or shadows.
