You have never had a reason to believe in them unless and until you believe you have sensed them.

And yet, if you go out with a Sasquatch hunter, he will sense Sasquatches left and right. Hear them, smell them, catch fleeting glimpses of them. And UFO believers will see UFOs.

And religious believers will sense the presence of the Lord.

It seems to be a matter of training and expectation.
