Will a Christian please give some positive evidence for their not believing in gremlins?

This question sounds like it’s getting at a William Paley type of argument. Paley argued that if one found a watch on the ground, they would know it was made. Therefore, since nature is more complex than a watch, it must have a maker. But it is argued that this is a disanalogy because everyone knows watches are made but it’s not clear to everyone that nature was made. In a similar way, the implication that God and gremlins are fictions is a disanalogy. Everyone knows gremlins are fictional characters but it is not clear to everyone whether God is fictional. In fact, for most people in the world the opposite is true.
