Religion have done its job.
Science is envious, since the area of spirituality escapes it.
Organized religion is only religion possible.

There is no greater spiritual pursuit than to try and understand the universe by testing your ideas experimentally. As Einstein has said: "I want to know how God did it". There can be no greater threat to spirituality than to argue that some questions should not be asked. Organised religion still has a long way to go before it can compete with the "wonder of doing science". There is and never will be a greater miracle than our ability to do the latter. It is THE way to discover God.
