Anyone who believes there will be a Singularity of some kind bases it on extrapolation of fact.
So, they're placing faith on the fact that their extrapolation is correct?

A lot of sci-fi writers, technologists, economists, educators, scientists, etc are finally coming around to the likelihood of a singularity. I've seen a lot of recent articles where they are becoming convinced. Eventually economic planning will abandon the linear, innacurate model we have now and move towards an exponential one.
And a lot don't.
