Getting inquisitive to know about the True meaning of words scientific and spiritualism is not an old concept. As per the formal definitions, the former stands for something which is technical, systematic, logical, precise, exact, controlled etc. whereas, the latter stands for religious, holy, saintly, pious, sacred, devout and divine etc. so as per the dictionary meaning of these two words, they seem to be the antonym of each other. It does rather seem that word logical stands for one end of the spectrum, while the divine for the other end of it. It further leads to the generation of an idea that the person with divine qualities lacks logic and precision in the thoughts, and does not live systematically by controlling his way of life.

Hence one can say that these two words are not at variance with each other.
