Yeah, unfortunately there are many good scientists who do this. Although, I do not clearly understand their position in life, it seems to me, either they act like religious people consciously for some other purpose or compartmentalize their views based on the context.

Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs. Some of them are fanatics - going to extreme measures for their faith and others just follow along the footsteps of their families. I am not quite sure how they could be described in the sense that you are asking though.

These people are in between us only, but they have some or the other thing, that is different from us and that is their firm belief in GOD. They have no doubt about the existence of GOD and his superiority. They knew that they have been imparted life as a gift to worship HIM and return to HIM after their death to receive a better gift that this life.

I think faith is good as long as long as it did not disturb the basic track of your life. Once a man is committed to religion with a balanced approach, life starts having meaning.

Faithful people are the one who really shows the path of godly righteousness and hard work to stand for  it.

One's faith and what he currently holds sacred is not sacred for any reason other than that it was thought sacred yesterday. If we could create a new world, the practice of organizing our lives around untestable propositions found in ancient literature - to say nothing of killing and dying for them - would be impossble to justify. What stops us from finding it impossible now?

Answer: Religious conditioning and historical brainwashing.

I don't give these people a name. I mean, everyone is entitled to their beliefs and even as atheists, we have to respect them. I don't dismiss their opinions and in fact, I listen to them quite often to reflect on my own set of ideology. I enjoy a heated but friendly debate with my Catholic and Christian friends and it's nice to hear their voice sometimes.

Since I do not believe in labels, because they contribute to the division that exist between human beings (and I'm talking about divisive labels not descriptive labels), my description of "people of faiths," includes Atheist, Christians, Muslims, Buddhist, Agnostic, etc.

The Christian has faith in God, the Muslim has faith in Allah, the Buddhist has faith in Buddha, and the Atheist has faith in the Big Bang theory. Since the non-religious definition of "faith" is "belief," this places the Atheist in the very same boat as the others: arguing a concept of which he has no way of validating.

How do I describe them?

Uh, as people? Or if we're talking strictly about their religious beliefs, then I guess I might describe them as "religious" or more specifically by the label they give themselves based on what religion they follow. Beyond that, though, I guess I don't really think about it that way.

     All of these belief systems are really a process that is to be worked on ones self. If this work is done right you can put faith, and belief in the garbage where it belongs. The end result of these processes is conscious contact and what the Mystics call stepping into the knowing. Most people out there would rather fight over who's way is right and who's is wrong instead of doing the the work to awaken.
