A scientific person keeps his/her search on null-hypothesis that there is nothing sentient in the universe which exists before matter. Sentience is product of matter. But s/he is not satisfied with his conclusion but keep searching new things which proves his hypothesis.
A spiritual person keeps his search on alternative-hypothesis that there is something sentient in the universe which exists before the matter. I am that sentience which is not different from any other sentient being. He is also not satisfied with his conclusion and keep searching the meaning of life to prove his hypothesis.
A religious person keeps his search on null-hypothesis that there is something sentient in the universe which exists before the mater. The supreme being is omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, that being knows what we are doing and rewards us from our karma. Either today, in next life or on judgmental day. We are different from the supreme being. He is also not satisfied with his conclusion and keep searching the god in sky or place of prayer.
Now if scientific person is ethical then he is voluntarily ethical and he fears only the law of the land. If spiritual person is ethical he is also voluntarily ethics he fears from the law of karma. If religious person is ethical then he is because of fear of supreme being called God. If he want to do something which may please to him/her but not to his/her God then s/he looks corner of the world where s/he try to justify that God may not be there to do unethical things.
To reach the spiritual state in life you need to pass through the religious life, either earlier in this life or previous life. To be scientific and ethical you need be a person of high courage and high values. To be religious you just need to be present on earth. Every person who fear from unknown and then live life of values and ethics is religious person. Sometime this type person also become Satan, when they feel that God is not looking them or God has justified their actions in their religious books.
