About the guy below, I think he might be a poe. Sadly we have no way of telling though. Damn you Poe's Law.
Faith is believing something about evidence. Science is based on rigorous methods of research into the functionings of reality and everything that underpins it, which we understand from collected and observed evidence through direct and indirect means. I most certainly do not have 'faith' in science. Certainly not in that sense.

but i see is you choose to have "FAITH" in science though you say you cant believe in faith alone
caused most fact are based taking an assumption(a small tiny one at least) you have faith in that assumption whether you know it or not
As for that basis, those with religious faith have to take the same assumptions that an atheist does, our hand's are pretty much forced here. See the Munchhausen Trilemma.

An athiest is a person who doesnt believe in a God/gods
not a person who believes a God/gods do not exist.

So what do you actually believe then?
Would agnostic be a better word to describe you, rather than atheist?
An agnostic is a person who does not know how to interpret evidence (if any) to come to a conclusion (even if that conclusion is that there isnt enough evidence to make a definite claim)
An antithiest believes a God does not exist.
