    Well I've always maintained that I don't have sufficient knowledge to be certain of most
    things (in an absolute sense) so maybe this is a fallout from that. All I can say is that so
    far Science has been good at what it is supposed to do but how far that can go I have no
    idea. If that's what you see as faith then I can only disagree.

    See ya


    well not in that wording I don't :-)
     when you say you have no idea how far it can go it doesn't seem like faith, when you say you think it will change it does seem like faith
