EhBeth, let me ask directly (I thought I was clear in the point)...
Do you believe in human rights?
Do you believe that society should not accept rape?
Do you believe that women are equal to men?
Do you believe human life is intrinsically valuable?
I believe all of these things are true-- however I can not prove any one of them scientifically (even though I was trained in science).
I thought we agreed on the definition of "faith" as something you believe without scientific proof. If this is the definition, I don't think it is possible to live without faith.
I am questioning that your world view is superior to that of any religion. If the measure is whether you believe things that can't be proven, I don't believe you are any different then them. It is just the things you believe without proof are different then the things they believe without proof.
