It would be far more interesting to compare current science and spirituality, which is based on direct experince, not dogma. There are thousands of years of corrrobrated insight into spiritual experince, and they are not easily dismissed.

The best scientists are those willing to test hypotheses directly through experimentation, not attempt to vilify that which they don't understand through prejudice. Modern science is a very delimited process largely controlled by rigid institutional, politcal and economic hegemonies. There's a very good summary of these problems in Rupert sheldrake's "The Science Delusion." Sheldrake is a scientist who does experiments on a range of phenomena related to spiritual experince, and what have been labled 'psychic' phenomena. The latter are actually normal human experiences, but rejected by ignorance of a rigid science which refuses to emprically investigate them, let alone submit itself to the direct experience of meditative and spiritual experience. Modern China is one of the most repressed and backward cultures in this respect, as almost nobody has any experience or understanding of these domains due to political constraints. That is a great pity, as there is a rich history of wisdom in this domain in China. But it is now dead.

"The Falsity of Religion...twelve arguments...By John Birdman Bryant"

With a name such as "Birdman" ...

I am laughing with you too, my friend.  It's a good thing that Birdman died a year ago: he is an evil nutcase.  While Christianity is the most evil philosophy in the world, China would actually do well to become a good mix of Islam and Hinduism.
