Of course there's a difference, and a huge one indeed.  Just as there
is a difference between faith and idiocy.  Also a huge one.

In order to discuss your second claim: (1) agreement on the definition
of "evidence" needed (hard) and (2) agreement on the definition of
"faith" needed (even harder).

Discussion about this = fun, useful.

Discussion about this with someone who misquotes and offends people =
  not fun, less useful.

I'm getting back to my family and my work, bye.
