I don't NEGLECT these points at all. In fact, you first paragraph merely underscores what I said. Of course, religious is the domain of "faith," which by definition is non-demonstrable and non-provable. I never said that faith goes hand-in-hand with ignorance: that was YOUR presumption.
Your second paragraph makes little sense, so you need to expound on it: what is your point regarding reliance on evidence? That those who ASK for it are "dependent on fantasy?" If so, your point is sheer gibberish. Please explain.
