Is that right? Aren't science and faith both subsets of philosophy?

As I see it, no.

Faith (religion) is believing that some preferred God created navals from nothing.

Philosophy is navel gazing. On the one hand, navels are a result of Mitra creating them. On the other hand, it might me that Mitra didn' create navals.

Science is styding how navals were formed to get to a reliable conclusion.

The scientific method provides reliable answers to that question.

It's the opposite of religion or faith.
