Philosophy of Science Part 1
One system requires no proof and accepts things on faith [regarding faith]. The other system accepts nothing on faith and requires proof for all it's beliefs [regarding science].
My understanding of good science it that it is not only able to make use of inference, conjecture, and leaps of faith, but must do so in order to reach out into the unknown. My understanding of faith is that is rests on evidence and is not merely a fabrication of the imagination.
