Surely the states of "belief" and "suspension of belief" are subsets of "not knowing"? If you're waiting for further evidence, it can only be because you don't know the answer. To start talking about belief as a way of knowing something and suspension of belief as a half-way house between knowing and not knowing is getting a bit metaphysical for me.
