I'd much prefer to have faith in something tangible than intangible. The beauty of Science is that you can test it. If I had severe doubts in the Scientific Method or a theory put forward by scientists I could very well study the same books they have, do the work, and find out for myself whether it makes sense. Granted, I'm not nearly as intellectually gifted as many acclaimed scientists which puts me at a disadvantage, but with enough time and energy one could certainly do it, or at least come far closer to doing it than someone who believes in intangible fairy tales, parables, and mythologies could ever dream of. Religious faith is purely faith with no real connection to reality or truth unless that is what you believe. If you choose not to believe in gravity or friction you're very welcome to, but it will still be there crushing things and starting fires. If you don't believe in the Bible you can just ignore it and it will never affect you in the slightest (unless you count the fantastical imaginings of those who do believe in it, which you shouldn't).
I've been curious about this for the last few weeks: What do you religious folk imagine is different between you all and the Greeks? Or the Vikings? Or Ancient Romans? Or Hindus (this one is quite interesting because Hinduism is still in practice today in large quantities)? Put yourself in their shoes (I find this is really hard for religiously minded people for some reason but please try) and try to explain why your particular fantasy actually is true whereas hundred of religions before yours faded into "myth" despite their followers being quite sure they were real.

"In my opinion, there is a more scientific approach we can take to all hot-button issues. We do this when we stop demonizing the opposing viewpoints or victimizing ourselves, and we acknowledge and account for our own biases and emotions to the best of our ability."
