This is exactly what I'm saying.
Also, the question in general is a vague one. If we were to assume that the specific question is: "Religious Faith is incompatible with science", we are assuming that all Religious views are equal to one another. This is a subjective concept that needs clarification. For example: Science governs my own views, but I do not assume to know what set those scientific practices in place.
Evidence always comes from a source though, and the credibility of that source needs a little bit of faith. Anecdotal evidence requires faith in the person giving the information, evidence you witness yourself requires faith in your senses, documentary evidence requires faith in those who put together the document, mathematical proofs even require faith in the validity of prior art and base axioms used.
if a belief is based on evidence, then it is not faith
Faith is merely the act of putting your trust on something, with or without evidence. You can put your faith in the scientific method, or any hypothesis.
Blind Faith yes, but faith in the Bible is not blind. Hebrews 12 says that there is evidence for Biblical faith.
faith is the believe in something even though there is an absence of evidence or even evidence of absence. This is antithetical to the scientific method where believe in "x" is withheld until evidence for "X" is established.
