I see it differently. I first have hope, but hope that is seen isn't hope. What we "see" becomes knowledge. A rope has tensile strength that is recognized well-enough (knowledge) to allow one to have confidence. That is more about science than it is about faith.Confidence equals faith. If I swing out over a precipice on a rope, it is only because I have the confidence/faith in the rope. If I step out of a plane with a parachute, it is only because I have confidence/faith in that parachute. You can have confidence in evolution, but you cannot observe or test it.
I don't have faith the chair I sit in will hold me because I have abundant evidence it will. If a strange chair is introduced, I can do statics engineering to determine if it will hold me.
A good example, perhaps, of a deeper meaning to faith is, in the movie, when Indian Jones had to trust in the words of the book he had (along with the belief his father held) to leap from the lion's head out into the abyss. He had no evidence or knowledge, he had to engage faith. Most steps aren't so dramatic, of course. Thank goodness.
