Yeah you were wrong, and for a man of science and common sense that's pretty shocking that you assumed to know "what every religion does". I know you're being sarcastic again but how does submission, surrender and worship mean blind faith?

Obviously being a muslim means submitting, surrendering and worshiping Allah; this is what being a muslim is about. However, we need to look at WHY, clearly the author of the Quran is inviting us to study nature and the universe as a whole to see that everything has a supreme creator - Allah.

Also, to widen this issue a little. Here's what the Quran says about other people who don’t have proof for their conjectures:

And they say: "None shall enter Paradise unless he be a Jew or a Christian." Those are their (vain) desires. Say: "Produce your proof if ye are truthful."
Quran (2:111)

And if ye are in doubt as to what We have revealed from time to time to Our servant, then produce a Sura like thereunto; and call your witnesses or helpers (If there are any) besides God, if your (doubts) are true.
Quran (2:23)
