I think you are conflating faith and confidence. I have confidence that my car will start because it has a history of starting, IOW a body of evidence. If it doesn't start then that it doesn't mean I was wrong to have confidence, just that I was missing a further piece of evidence to bring my knowledge up to date (such as the battery going flat overnight) Faith in a creator deity is of a different type - we lack certain knowledge of how this or that came to be, therefore we postulate an unknown force (a god) to plug the gaps and assume it to be true. There's no body of evidence to draw a confidence level from, just a series of unknowns. Natural processes exist. Natural processes explain events that have been previously been "explained" by deities or supernatural forces. There has never been a natural process which has been overturned by a supernatural one; it's a one way street. So really, how does it require faith to acknowledge that there are things in the universe that we don't know the processes for? It would surely be the height of hubris to suggest otherwise! Once we have access to every piece of knowledge in the universe and find that there are still areas we cannot explain, THEN is the time to start postulating about forces beyond its boundaries, not before!
