Losing faith in God or replacing Him
with science as in atheism (just a lower
case theism, of course) seems symptomatic 
of not wanting to hear someone's individual
story.  It seems indicative of not wishing to 
listen to that particular description of the 
inexplicable.  It's a matter of not being open 
to other interpretations.  In order to listen 
one must have faith because the language
heard is always alien, even if spoken in 
the same tongue; the ideas behind the 
message strange, or never encountered 
before.  If you can believe in others,
only then may you believe in Him.
If you can only believe in yourself, 
ironically even the simple idea of
God becomes much more challenging.
