Is science against the idea of a soul/ spirit?

    Science isn't "against" the idea of a soul/spirit, it just doesn't point to one.  There is no scientific evidence for a soul or spirit so science is just silent on this matter. If evidence comes along to show a soul, science will include the idea.

    Neither, science deals with the natural world.

    Science is against the idea of believing something to be true in the complete and total absence of any evidence whatsoever supporting it.

    Science has an open mind. What we need is supporting facts. Unless there are facts in support of some idea scientists do not embrace it. Science cannot prove the negative, and so we cannot prove that a soul does not exist.

    That idea is not addressed by science.

    No.  It takes no position for or against.  It's not even a scientific question.  Scientists are only interested in questions that can be addressed using the methods of science.  Science was developed as a tool to investigate questions of natural causation--by definition then, only physical means of detection are used.  Questions about the supernatural are not part of science's domain of interest, because science's physical methods of detection cannot be used to examine supernatural stuff.
