Francis Crick the great molecular biologist, physicist, and neuroscientist who was one of the co-discoverers of the structure of the DNA molecule wrote in his book Life Itself: Its Origin and Nature :

“To me it is remarkable that this astonishing discovery, the vastness and emptiness of space, has not attracted the imaginative attention of poets and religious thinkers. People are happy to contemplate the limitless powers of God––a doubtful proposition at best––but quite unwilling to meditate creatively on the size of this extraordinary universe in which, through no virtue of their own, they find themselves.”
