And what we learn from science directly improves our quality of life, whereas religion's only practical function is to give people hope. On the other hand most religions tell people faith is good whereas my entire k-12 and post-secondary education told me that was horseshit and that whenever something was unknown I should either research or experiment or use a proof to come to a (reasonable) answer. Again, one of these systems is practical. The other is less than worthless. I don't have faith because I have a brain.

Everybody has a brain, but very few actually use it. Faith kept the intelligent mind alive during times when any logical person would have given up all hope. Likewise, science maintains our hope today despite the fact we know we live in a finite universe and are hopelessly afar from anything else worthy of mention. If that's not faith, I don't know what is.

I find it ironic that you rebel against the rigid structures that are popular, only to find shelter in one of your own construction.
