Faith is an eternalist ploy for blinding yourself to nebulosity. It means explicitly choosing to ignore experience or reason when they contradict eternalism. This need not be faith in any particular belief or system, but simply in certainty that there is some meaningful order to everything.

Faith implies dumbing yourself down, and looking for external authority to affirm eternalism over reality as you can perceive it.

The antidote is regaining self-trust and intelligence by learning, through experience, that personal observation and reasoning can yield accurate understanding.
