Jill: "I'm spiritual."
Bill: "So what does that even mean? Do you believe in spirits? Religion? God? Faries? Science? How does spirituality even have an application in your life?"
Jill: "No, I don't believe in religions, look how harmful they are to the world, I am spiritual."
Bill: "So basically, you hiding behind a wall of vague bullshit and feeling comforted by your mental crutch?"

People will always try to tell you to pick a team. To cut the bullshit and stop saying your spiritual. Those people can also kiss your ass. And when they question your beliefs and intelligence, simply give them the okay to do so.
Oh, I believe in spirituality
In many cases they suggest that subscribing to some abstract way of thinking is a solution to subjective needs for redemption, moral fulfillment, or satisfaction with one's self or life.
Some more advanced spiritualities try to trick the slightly less ignorant masses into thinking that they are well founded by using false science, false claims, assigning meaningless tasks to give the illusion of affirmative action, and by appealing to the large number of followers they've amassed.
