Scientists do not use terms like “spirituality” not only because it is not clearly defined, but because you cannot detect it, you cannot measure it, and you cannot prove or disprove its existence with any laboratory equipment. The number one argument against anything spiritual is that it has never been detected in any laboratory experiment.  Needless to say, this argument is silly.  To detect something in a laboratory, we need equipment that is appropriate for what we are seeking to detect.  One does not detect sound with a microscope or light with a microphone.  Even using generally appropriate instruments, such as a microphone for sound detection, the equipment must be fine-tuned to the particular type of sound. One cannot detect ultrasound (>20kHz) with a microphone that can only pick up audible sounds (20Hz-20kHz). [...]
