I would agree that the foundation of Christian faith is trust in the Creator
- and that it is neither dependant on nor limited by the presence of
evidence.  On the other hand, scripture clearly states that part of the
design of the Universe included the signature evidence of the designer.  It
is at least partially because of this, according to scripture, that no man
can rightfully claim ignorance - and therefore avoid accountability.
