This triggered my thoughts to relate that case to my own faith and how I am able to retain my belief that God exists, against the deposition that he does not. No matter how many tests the Sceptic requested to prove that there was a gardener, the Believer maintained his faith until his belief that there was a gardener was basically useless. Flew eventually got to the point where he described the Sceptic asking, “Just how does what you call an invisible, intangible, eternally elusive gardener differ from an imaginary gardener or even from no gardener at all?” (Flew, 298) I relate Flew’s example to my own case of how an atheist could possibly ask me how God exists if he is not ever seen and there is no real proof that he exists. That idea would lead to my faith
