Good points, Caleob.
For me, when looking for scientific explanations, faith (or for that matter, God) doesn't enter the picture. And not just for me; this is standard operating procedure for responsible people of all religions or no religion when they're doing science. Otherwise we'd have Hindu science, Muslim science, Christian science (oops, we do have that, don't we? - there's the denomination "Christian Science" - But the point is we know that's religion and not science). Instead, responsible scientists of whatever view drop their philosophical or metaphysical proclivities when they all get on the same page that is science.
Similarly, when I hold back my desire to take revenge or decide to help someone out who's in financial trouble or to apologize when I've hurt someone, I don't look to science for help with that decision. Neither do any of you. You might look to humanism or something else, as I look to Jesus and his teachings.
