Does Faith Equal Science?

Looking at the Bible's and Buddhist stories of the gardens and my 33 year of searching for evidence to support the Christian religion I came out of, I am led to believe "Faith and Science" are the same except faith is non-destructive but also uses the findings of the destructive science.

Hebrews 11:1 say "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" suggesting we have to discover or find substance and evidences to support our beliefs. Many of the sages have told us to become objective by telling us do not be attached, do not desire more than survival needs and wisdom and not to cling to places, people or things.

Another of the Bible's teachings is "judge not", said by Jesus, and "do not eat from the tree of good and evil", told to the supposedly formed Adam. They both encourages objectivity in viewing places, people and things.

The story of the buddha being the son of a rick landowner who attempted to spare his child the knowledge of the opposites and the story of Adam in the garden are both the same basic story. The one differences I've found, Adam was told the consequences of judging things, he would not have objectivity and become what is called dead, while the buddha was not told, he slipped out of his paradise and found the opposites. According to the end result Adam was told by the serpent, he would become as god, the buddha discovered god within himself, the resulted in the same end.

Thus, when one believe something they are then obligated to discover how it is possible, why is it happening and how it can be achieved, which is the work of a non-destroying scientist.

What do you think?
