Love-Hate Relationship With Materials Science

I'm having trouble designing anything w/o materials. Is there anyway out of this situation?

Why not go first class . . . design it without a container !

There is not any way. So, you might as well get over it, grow up, and make friends with materials science. I suspect that you previously had an unfortunate encounter with this subject.
My recommendation is that you make a New Year's resolution to quit posting your whining complaints on this group until after you sit down and read more about the subject.
Mike Ashby has written a couple of excellent books, "Materials Selection in Mechanical Design (1999), and (with Kara Johnson) another less technical book on "Materials and Design" (2001), which is subtitled as The art and science of materials selection in product design.

The critical problem of energy storage ultimately always comes down to materials science.
Do we really want the fate of mankind dependent on voodoo and witch craft?

Voodoo? Witchcraft? Horsecrap!
Bret Cahill's attitude is an illustration of Arthur C. Clarke's Third Law that ""Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."
Materials science and engineering is a roughly fifty-year old subject area. It is not simple, but it is not magic, unless of course you wish to remain ignorant (see R. W. Cahn's book, "The Coming of Materials Science").
Anyone who wishes to learn more about it could do a lot worse than getting and reading the Ashby & Jones books "Engineering Materials 1 (an introduction to their properties and applications)" and "Engineering Materials 2 (an introduction to microstructures, processing and design)".
Ashby's advice on writing is also worth reading, and you can download it for free. See: http://www.grantadesign.com/download/pdf/How_to_write_a_paper_6th_edition_2005.pdf
