Blind faith would be defined as belief without evidence...
Biblical faith is defined as "the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen"
And I agree with the author of Romans that "... his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made...."
I said my belief system requires justification, or evidence, or reasons.....It does not however require PROOF, meaning it does not require evidence to support it as FACT. because being a BELIEF SYSTEM it cannot possibly be PROVEN FACT....they are intrinsically different....
noun ˈe-və-dən(t)s, -və-ˌden(t)s
Definition of EVIDENCE
a : an outward sign : indication
b : something that furnishes proof : testimony; specifically : something legally submitted to a tribunal to ascertain the truth of a matter
I did answer the question...My experience with "cosmic relationships" as you put it...versus your opinion that they do not exist....Clearly shows that if ANYONE is to have more knowledge...it'd be the one that actually believes in such things....
Christianities King = Jesus Christ
Roman King = Julius Ceaser
= JC, JC

I've already responded to that post. Belief doesn't inherently guarantee any sort of experience or knowledge. I believe the Earth exists. I am not, however, an expert on it. My point stands as made in my previous post.
