Smcientific ethod can't prove anything whatsoever, in much the same way that mathematics can't make coffee, or meditation do the gardening for you.

That's because it's a category mistake, an absence of understanding of what science entails.

Science isn't about proof, it's about evidence. So all you're really saying is that there is an absence of evidence for spirits and life after death, therefore science has no purchase on such claims, and thus they remain belief-statements.

It is irrational to believe anything that hasn't been proven.This is the main philosophy behind most skeptical arguments. just because something hasn't been proven and established in mainstream science doesn't mean it doesn't exist or isn't true. If it did, then nothing would exist until proven or discovered.
