But that doesn't mean believing things without evidence.

Lacking sufficient resources (time, energy, focus) to be able to enumerate one's evidence is not the same as not having any. I believe that I have sufficient evidence to believe what I believe, but I do not currently have a transcript of the reasoning by which I arrived at this belief.
