It looks to me like He was saying that believing without evidence is also acceptable. There's no clear indication of preference"

Wat? So all this time I thought it was a example of how it was preferable to believe in the absence of evidence according to traditional Christian teachings. Silly me.

Kinda like when Jesus told that roman soldier that his faith has healed his son because he believed without seeing.

Silly me all this time I thought that was the whole damn point. The roman soldier who was a pagan btw was told that it was his faith without seeing NOT well it really doesn't matter if you see me do it or not no big diff.
