When I say “faith” do you think religion?

After posting Faith in the Process I came across Richard Dawkins.

He uses the term faith synonymously with religious and that surprises me. I use that word a lot, but I don’t think of it in the same way.

Dawkins has said

Faith is the great cop-out, the great excuse to evade the need to think and evaluate evidence. Faith is belief in spite of, even perhaps because of, the lack of evidence.

Is that with a capital “F”?

I don’t mean religion when I say it. I mean a deeper sense of trust.

What else do you call that driving feeling when going against the grain of the world?
