A faith in God that cannot be moved by evidence

The debate about evolution with Mike Purington (which began here) continues. At first Purington seemed to be arguing for his view from science, but his later writings indicate that he is really relying on theology as his source, not science. Purington writes with approval of "a faith in God that cannot be moved no matter how much circumstantial evidence is produced." If the evidence does not matter, why even pretend to be interested in the evidence?

For the record, I respond to Purington here.
