Are science & spirituality one and the same?

I believe they are it’s just they use different deductive reasoning processors to evaluate to become further aware, what do you think?

    Mar 10 2013: Science came into being initially to try & understand how God accomplished things in the material world. It has recently redefined itself as materialist-only. If we try to understand a materialist problem that actually has a spiritual component we are doomed to failure. Better to go with the evidence, even if it points in a spiritual direction, than to invent a whopper just to keep everything within a materialistic framework.
    Yes science & spirituality are closely related.

      Utterly agree on this......modern day science had gone materialistic which is a huge shame but I suppose that is the sign of the times. I had this same discussion on consumerist materialistic science before in reference to hydraulic fracturing, it was quite controversial as you could imagine. Science needs spiritualism to get it back on track I believe.
