So, I'm thinking since my last post. If all of the Universe is a whole, then perhaps Science and Spirituality are much more closely related than some believe they are.
If Science cannot yet conclusively state whether a person is alive or dead and we don't know that improved technology will ever find the answer, other than by faith that it will, maybe it would be best for each to become his own Theologian. And Scientist, as well. Seems Scientists are already depending on faith with the hope that it will. Perhaps it is just as possible that it will not.
I don't see the two as diametrically opposed at all. It makes sense to me that a Universe which chaotically seems to seek equilibrium would also have room for this, at first glance, dichotomy.
Perhaps the insistence of always needing a final answer to every question could be a red herring, drawing us away from the Truth.
