Atheistic claims are false .
Any view regarding the external world that denies the possibility of rational thought regarding the external world prohibits warrant for the deductive process and is thus deductively false.
Premise 1: If premises begin to exist without reason, then conclusions drawn from them are also without reason.
Premise 2: If there is no god, all initial human premises about the external world begin to exist without reason.
Conclusion: Therefore, if there is no god, all human conclusions about the external world are also without reason.
If there is no god, there is no reason to accept the universality or the invariance of logic or the deductive process, making atheistic claims themselves deductively false.
This Argument from Reason demonstrates that god exists.

"What's an easy way to show that Mormonism is false?"
An extraordinarily important, core aspect of the Mormon faith is the concept of "free agency." Jesus Christ exercised free agency, Satan exercised it, and we also exercise it. Their "free agency" seems to be identical to what others refer to as "libertarian free will." Unlike many other Christian groups, Mormons correctly realize that their concept of "free agency" cannot be correct if we, and everything around us, were actually entirely created by God.
"If god is perfect, how did he manage to create imperfection?"
In answer, I will assume this question is referring essentially to sinful humans and fallen angels (or demons). So, rephrased, what I understand this question to be asking is how a perfect God could have created sinful people. Self-described Christians generally offer, to my knowledge, one of three answers to this. 1.
"Why does the creator of the entire universe get the value of pi wrong (2 Chron 4: 2)?"
God didn't get Pi wrong. Rather, He rounded to the nearest cubit. "Also he made the cast metal sea, ten cubits from brim to brim, circular in form, and its height was five cubits and its circumference thirty cubits." -2 Chronicles 4:2 If we were to write down the whole value of Pi, or in this case, Pi times 10, we would never finish writing. Therefore, whenever anyone, Creator of the universe or not, writes down the value of Pi for us to read, it is always rounded.
