"How is it we are here, on this path we walk,
In this world of pointless fear, filled with empty talk ?
Descending from the apes as scientist-priests all think,
Will they save us in the end, we're trembling on the brink."
"As an adolescent I aspired to lasting fame, I craved factual certainty, and I thirsted for a meaningful vision of human life - so I became a scientist. This is like becoming an archbishop so you can meet girls."
