A Scientist’s View on Life After Death

Dr. Wernher von Braun, well-known for his role in the U.S. space programme, said he had “essentially scientific” reasons for believing in life after death.

He explained:

Science has found that nothing can disappear without a trace. Nature does not know extinction. All it knows is transformation. If God applies the fundamental principle to the most minute and insignificant parts of the universe, doesn’t it make sense to assume that he applies it to the masterpiece of his creation –the human soul? I think it does.

In a letter to the Californian State board of education (14 September 1972) he wrote:

They challenge science to prove the existence of God. But must we really light a candle to see the sun?
