Flaws in the Objective Morality argument for god

This has always been an odd argument for god.  Basically it states that with out a moral law giver, there can be no objective morals.  There are objective morals.  Therefore there's a god.

Flaws with this argument:
1:  The main flaw with this argument is that there does not have to be objective morals.
2:  The moral law giver does not have to be a god.  Evolution and/or society can function as the moral law giver.  The drastic shifts in morality over time and in different societies indicates that this is the case.
3:  This would not get you past deism.  There is no way of knowing which, if any, of the roughly 150,000 known religions had it right.
