Nope. Consistency is important but the idea that things in the end will fall to reason subsumes it. In order to work, science needs a world that can be understood via reason. It is the greater of the two ideas. If the world were consistently haphazard, for example, science could not be done. A science-based faith is required when we, for example, accept statistical evidence and analysis. We also rarely have all the evidence and must rely on the two standards I cited.
