Apollo 11 Astronaut Buzz Aldrin took communion on the moon
Apollo 8 astronauts read from Genesis when in orbit
Roger B. Chaffee (Died in Apollo 1 fire) is quoted as saying
“The world itself looks cleaner and so much more beautiful. Maybe we can make it that way—the way God intended it to be—by giving everybody that new perspective from out in space”
James Irwin (Apollo 15) wrote “Being on the moon had a profound spiritual impact upon my life. Before I entered space with the Apollo 15 mission in July of 1971, I was a lukewarm Christian, to say the least! I was even a silent Christian, but I feel the Lord sent me to the moon so I could return to the earth and share his Son, Jesus Christ.”
John Glenn the first American to orbit the Earth told reporters
“To look out at this kind of creation and not believe in God is to me impossible. It just strengthens my faith.”
These are just a few examples of astronauts that had faith in God. I’m not here to start a debate. Just to say I feel it’s a bit disingenuous to tie in scientific discoveries with a lack of faith when some of the key people in those discoveries clearly had strong beliefs in some form of a higher power.
Also the quote is attributed to yuri gagarin the first man in space, however, wether he actually said that0 he saw no god in space is highly disputed, and he may have even been a convinced Christian.
Well I don’t think the soviet union took to kindly to any religion so that info doesn’t surprise me. I was trying to figure out if op had a source but couldn’t.
Also even if he did say that, I don’t know any Christian who would expect to see God just kind of hanging out in orbit around the earth…
Everyone knows God floats about in space like Princess Leia in The Last Jedi
