For many people especially nonreligious people, the arbiter of truth is experience-only what what I have perceived (your perception is your reality “wether its false or not”) and can perceive with my senses can be trusted. Well then this rules out things like creation, and the resurrection. Imagination offers a broader perspective on truth. If imagination is the capacity to visualize, to be confident in or hopeful of a reality that contradicts our experience, then it refuses to let our senses determine the limits what is possible. This is why faith is an act of imagination.
-Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not yet seen.
