At the risk of repeating myself, Faith is not choosing to believe something despite lack of evidence. Faith is trusting God based on the evidence of who God is and your relationship with you. It's a living thing that is supposed to grow and get deeper as you live your life. It is built on living through trials and tribulation and seeing how God has brought you through them. It always amazes me when people say that God doesn't intervene in our lives when God has done so much. He protects and blesses us. Sometimes it is easy to see it and sometimes we can't because He keeps some things away from us. We aren't even aware of those because we miss those. Because Faith is not contrary to truth or evidence of course you can have truth and faith simultaneously.
I do agree with Matt McCormick that atheist faith is absurd - no evidence for it. As for God, I have to go with Paul
18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.Faith in other gods are not equal with faith in the God of the Bible. We have evidence for the Bible and the God who revealed himself in it. As for the other gods...we have nothing. No way are they equivalent.
21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.
24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
