No, because it isn't based on faith or dogma, but rather empirical evidence and the scientific method.

Science is a methodology, nothing is believed untill lots of experiments have failed to disprove it and even then its status as knowledge is still tentative.

A scientist will follow the evidence, they are likely to have a healthy sceptism. Religion relies on revelation and sacred texts to deliver truth.
