Generally speaking:

Religious = traditional, relatively unimaginative ways at inciting the supernatural to create communal cohesion and expansion.

Spiritual = unconventional, imaginative ways at inciting the supernatural to create greater sense of individualistic self expansion.

Spiritual types, for whatever reason, have less need for community, they have more capacity to wonder, to doubt, to ponder and to draw from many different religions, philosophies and sciences to gain a sense of cosmic purpose and individuality.

Religious types, for whatever reason, have relatively little capacity for doubt and wonder, and have a stronger need for family and community. They draw from their particular religion, and are more limited to another person's or book's authority.

Both sides have their dogmas and superstitions, and it's largely a difference in sophistication and emotional stability.
