Although some will disagree with me, I can accept that scientists have faith in what they do. However, with the proper tools any competent observer should be able to gather the data necessary to verify scientific claims. The same can't be said about religious claims.

Science does not require the blind faith that religion does, and what faith scientists do have in science it's much less faith than what religious people rely on.
