NASA’s leading rocket scientist believes science demonstrates there is an afterlife.
Science, at least according to NASA rocket pioneer Wernher von Braun, guarantees life after death and the possibility of a glorious afterlife.
Wernher von Braun, a controversial NASA rocket engineer who helped the US overcome Russia in the space race, believed in life after death. The rocket engineer stated in his book The Third Book of Words to Live By that the fundamental principles of the Universe support the existence of God and the afterlife. Nothing genuinely vanishes from the cosmos, according to Von Braun, and the human spirit is equally everlasting.
Even believing in an afterlife, according to the engineer, provides people the moral strength to be better and more ethical people.
“In our current environment, many people tend to believe that science has somehow rendered such ‘religious concepts’ obsolete or outdated,” he remarked.
“However, I believe science has a major surprise in store for the skeptics. According to science, nothing in nature, not even the tiniest atom, can vanish without leaving a trace.
“Take a moment to consider that. You’ll never think about life the same way again once you’ve done it.
“Nothing can vanish without leaving a trace, according to science. Extinction is unknown to nature. It only understands metamorphosis.
“Now, since God applies this fundamental principle to the tiniest and most unimportant aspects of His existence, isn’t it reasonable to infer that He also applies it to His masterpiece – the human soul?
“I believe it does. And what science has taught me – and continues to tell me – reinforces my faith in our spiritual existence after death. Nothing goes missing without leaving a trail.
“I think that the soul of man is immortal and will be dealt with fairness in another life respecting its behaviour in this,” the rocket scientist remarked in the same chapter, quoting US President Benjamin Franklin.
Nothing can vanish without leaving a trace, according to science.
NASA’s Wernher von Braun
Von Braun was a Berlin Institute of Technology and University of Berlin graduate who went on to create Nazi Germany’s deadly V2 rocket.
After the war, the Americans kidnapped him and made him the director of the US Army’s ballistic-weapons development.
By 1955, he had become a naturalized US citizen and had been assigned to the newly established National Aeronautics and Space Administration, or NASA.
