I would differentiate between "blind faith" and faith based on a trust that's been built up. I can't know for certain how my husband might behave in every situation, but I have faith that he will act in the best interest of our family. For that, I'd have to disagree with the statements. I wouldn't, however, have faith in something or someone for which I have no real knowledge or reason to expect certain behaviors, or in things I doubt exist.
