I don’t know if believing and thinking on these things increases ones chance of an experience. Maybe it does. But we know that plenty of skeptics and “non-believers” have experiences all of the time and are transformed by them, at least in intellectual terms. I gave my account of never having an experience. Stanton Friedman never saw a UFO. Here’s an man who studied, wrote, and lectured on the topic for half a century or so. It might be possible that NON-believers are more likely to have an experience. That wouldn’t surprise me if that were shown to be true. If The converse were shown to be true it wouldn’t surprise me either, however. But it may be that skeptics get experiences BECAUSE they are skeptics.
