Without faith, you couldn't rightly believe in reality, over and against unreality. Without faith, "unadulterated" reason might lead you to believe that you don't even exist and that you can't trust your senses at all (if you don't believe that, do a quick survey of Western Philosophy, especially the part following the post-enlightenment hangover). Yes there is faith in God. But faith trickles down into common things as well, as purely necessary. To say that religious faith is fanciful doesn't do justice to the more ordinary kind of faith you practice almost hourly ... A difference in degree, I think, not kind.
