Re: Faith in common.
Notice Stephen Hawking...

As brilliant as he is, he questions the universe yet does not question God. Any good scientist wouldn't rule the possibility of God out now would they?

No, but when they are doing science there is no need to factor God in or out.

Faith in science wins, faith in facts and the real world even if unseen, whether micro or macro wins.
Faith and Science are not two different entities as suggested by this topic or TITLE. Its a poorly worded title and irrational and illogical topic title.

The irony, it burns.
