Nope. Science is based on the idea that reality is consistent enough to be tested. People love larding in a lot of other ideas, but it all amounts to hot air and wishful thinking.
Science uses all available means to establish objective knowledge about the observable world. It's basically a methodology that tests the objectivity of observations. That's it. And science works just fine as shown by the many technologies that have flowed from it. None of this has anything at all to do with faith.
