People use the argument as proof that god exists.

I'm posing the counter that it's only proof that god might exist.

The argument proposes that there must be at least one non-contingent being if contingent beings are to exist.

It is impossible for everything in the universe to be contingent, for then there would be a time when nothing existed, and so nothing would exist now, since there would be nothing to bring anything into existence, which is clearly false.
But abiogenisis rejects this notion.

It's up to you to demonstrate why an ultimate maxim existing is a good assumption.
