Thanks. I disagree with your definition of faith. It’s not based on the absence of evidence. It isn’t blind. But it also doesn’t mean that we have every single one of our questions or doubts perfectly resolved, either. It’s trust in Him, who we know. And if all truth is God’s truth, then we need not avoid objections or just believe in spite of them.

I write more on the nature of faith here and here.
