Is beauty proof of God/Good?

For some people the existence of beauty is proof enough of the existence of god or good being the underlying reality of this universe.  This is not a logical argument but a feeling based conclusion.  For many people beauty is equated with truth and benevolence.  Ugliness is equated with a mean spirit and a delinquent mind.  When we look around the earth and the universe we see amazing beauty and diversity on a massive scale.  If a person believes that there is some kind of being or intelligence behind the world of form then it would seem logical to conclude that such a being is massive in scope and ability and noble in spirit.  Truly an artist, philosopher, scientist and mathematician rolled into one.
