The more the universe seems comprehensible, the more it also seems pointless.

This is often the way it is in physics - our mistake is not that we take our theories too seriously, but that we do not take them seriously enough.

It seems that scientists are often attracted to beautiful theories in the way that insects are attracted to flowers - not by logical deduction, but by something like a sense of smell.

With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.
