Belief <> faith, and not all faith is religious.

I believe that if I let go of a rock in my hand that it will drop. I
believe that that happens due to gravity. I believe that I can
calculate its speed when it hits the ground. In fact, have faith in
those things, as well. Faith is nothing more than confident belief.
