@brian navarro, i ment religion not faith in general. as in im a scientist and i believe in a religion like many scientists. for some reason the non scientific community is has started to believe that you have to choose and i guess most of the people who replyed to this status believe the same. so im going to post a new non ambiguous status.
I would contend that a scientist can have any theological allegiance they wish, so long as they don't think that the existence of god(s) are a valid explanation for certain things, such as the creation of the universe. The goal of science is to seek the truth, and assuming that questions have already been answered by bronze age bullshit (which humans pulled out of their asses without using the scientific method) is in direct conflict with that philosophy.
Having faith in yourself and in your team mates to complete a daunting task is a COMPLETELY different thing to having faith that an invisible man will come down and suddenly give you a miracle cure or answer for your experiment. When they say that you cannot have faith if your a scientist its because science is still VERY PISSED OFF about what happened in the dark ages.
The idea of what faith means is always interpreted differently. The faith people are talking about, the faith they claim is not needed, is the belief in religion. The other kind of faith is jus believing in something that you can't see. My friend has that problem, when I tell him to have faith, he always tells me that he hates religion and wishes it destroyed. It bugs me because that is not what I mean. Whether or not being a scientist is a rejection of faith is a matter of personal opinion. Having faith and believing in a faith are two different things, you just need to discern which one is which.
