    Not really. More like experience of human nauture and knowledge of history. Science is
    probably the best we currently have at explaining the physical nature of the world but
    sorely lacking when physical bounds are reached.


    I am still not clear on how it isn't faith----If they have not had the ability to explain beyond the physical bounds in the past how can you say that your belief that they will in the future is not faith but experience?
