Does the Ontological Argument have any value for the non-beliver?

Anselm was primarily concerned with showing that it is reasonable to believe in God (in other words, theism can be rational).

It fails to persuade most people, who seem to harbor the same suspicion as Kant that "the unconditioned necessity of a judgment does not form the absolute necessity of a thing." That is, perfection may not be a true predicate and thus a proposition can be logically necessary without being true in fact.
