Existence can be summed up as a Type VI civilization with no beginning or end - or where the beginning and the end temporally overlap as time is relative and non-linear beyond a 3D cosmos assuming evolutionary patterns, as with all patterns, fall along the Fibonacci sequence (a notion that is supported by Moore’s Law).

Everyone’s gotta put their faith in something, implications created from scientific data are the most non-moral and the least dogmatic and thus, in my mind, the most valid faith.

I only consciously use faith when my belief can affect reality, like the placebo effect.

Well, certain assumptions are made and regarded when it comes to the very fundamentals of living in a society of individuals who each have a unique perception of reality, among these being the assumption of consistency regarding how the world works and how it will continue to do so(even beyond the act of observation). Technically this requires faith, and science does indeed rely upon this faith in order to accurately represent reality as we perceive it; it is the principle behind this fundamental faith that separates the sciences from faith-based religion where faith is extended quite beyond the assumptions and axioms of a composite reality shared by people(and indeed everything, or at the very least most things).
