Your statement can be best described with the word "Smug".
Your insistence of us having 'faith' as if by so saying you equate science with religion.
Funny WE who actually work in the sciences don't think of it as faith. We think of it as evidence revealed.
It is only you ultra-religious folk who insist (with no basis in fact, just opinion) that we of the sciences must have 'faith'.
Like we start an experiment and give sacrifices to a god that the results may bear out what we presuppose.
I hate to break it to you, but that is not science. That would be like that religion called 'Christian Science'.
Real scientists set up an experiment not with the goal of proving a predisposed point but to find something totally unexpected.
THAT is the way to new knowledge, not some vague sacrifice to some god of science hoping an experiment proves your built in bias.
If you want you can view this video of the unexpected in science and how it leads to new science.
This is the antithesis of faith:
If you got that far that you watched professor Dunbar's talk, he talked about diversity and analogy.
This next vid shows exactly that, unexpected results in a scientific field and analogies used and a diverse bunch of scientists exploring in their fields:
