„The materialists of the nineteenth century and their Marxist heirs of the twentieth, tried to tell us that, as science gives us more knowledge about the creation, we could live without faith in a Creator. Yet so far, with every new answer, we have discovered new questions. The better we understand... the master plan for the galaxies, the more reason we have found to marvel at the wonder of God’s creation.“

— Wernher von Braun, As quoted in "Basis for an Assured Faith", in The Watchtower magazine (15 June 1981)
