It is argued that Science is a part of Spirituality, and that they both are indispensable for real progress and peace in the world. Religion is necessary too, but it needs to be spiritualized. Both materialistic science and materialistic religion are dangerous; the former often serves the latter. Reality cannot be fathomed by Science alone. Real progress of human beings is in the direction of increasing consciousness, rather than in becoming ready for star wars by training children in the same in videogames. The spiritual path is the only rational one; all others are prone to mislead because of ignorance.
