You suggest:
"Islamists are winning the spiritual argument, while West is relying on science.Not a good plan."

People steeped in spiritual lore can not argue with science effectively because they are traveling on different mental tracks.
I think this is a delusion of the science.
It is not that science in principle is uncapable of the analysis of spiruality, although traditionally it fails in that.
The correct analysis of spirituality would conclude that it is like art, and can not be taken apart and still be itself.
