How can I start this paper Hmmmm Lets begin with the parable Antony Flew starts off his speech by telling the audience this story of two explorers that accidentally came upon a garden in a jungle In this garden there were many beautiful flowers and weeds One explorer says some gardener must tend this plot While the other disagrees there is no gardener So these two explorers tried to figure out who was right and who was wrong They waited the whole night but no gardener was ever seen Then the Believer said that there must be a gardener that he is an invisible gardener He tried everything he could to convince to the Sceptic that he was right barbed-wire electrifying fence patrolling bloodhounds But no gardener was ever found Still the Believer was not convinced He gave the Sceptic many excuses as to why they couldnt see the gardener The Sceptic told him that he was crazy because what started out as a simple assertion that there was a gardener turned into an imaginary gardener This parable that Flew is using is clearly an analogy to the existence and belief of God The garden represents God invisible intangible insensible The Sceptic says there is no gardener just as an atheist denies the existence God The Believer says there is a gardener like a theist telling everyone that God exists The Believer tries to prove that there was a planter who planted the seeds for the flowers to grow This planter takes care of them a parallelism to God supposedly taking care of us Flew talks about assertions He states that what starts as an assertion that something existsmay be reduced step by step to an altogether different status He uses the example of how if one man were to talk about sexual behavior another man prefers to talk of Aphrodite They dont seem to make sense
