Lucas, I think your distinction between "thinking" and "believing" is confusing and unnecessary.

Agreed.

To believe something is to have faith in it, regardless of or in spite of facts.

Have you just make that up? Dictionaries include no shortage of much less restrictive definitions of 'believe', reflecting how people actually use the word.
