One issue to take into account, of course, being the difference between methodological materialism, and philosophical materialism.

The former consists of treating material entities as usefully informative, and not bothering with asserted "immaterial" entities until evidence exists that we need to.

The latter consists of asserting blindly that material entities are the only entities that exist.

All too often, people railing against "materialism" mistake the former for the latter.
