 Confusions of terms ‘secular’, ‘religion’, and ‘spiritual;…

These discussions confuse religion, spirituality, occult ism and supernaturalism. The advance of science has been confused by reductionist science and wrong definitions of ‘secularism’. A secular field embraces at its best a huge totality, one far more conducive in principle to ‘spirituality’ than ‘religion’ (i.e, here monotheism).
Spirituality has vastly increased in a secular field. Even as traditional religions fade away

Social scientists predicted that belief in the supernatural would drift away as modern science advanced. They were wrong. Source: Why Religion Is Not Going Away and Science Will Not Destroy It
