Charlie Duke – Apollo 16

A friend of ours got us to go to a bible study at the tennis club and after that weekend I said to Jesus, I said, I give you my life and be real, come into my life and I believe. And he did and I had this sense of peace that was hard to describe. It was so dramatic that we started sharing our story. I say my walk on the moon lasted 3 days and it was a great adventure, but my walk with God lasts forever.

Gene Cernan – Apollo 10 & 17

I felt that I was literally standing on a plateau somewhere out there in space. A plateau that science and technology had allowed me to get to. But now what I was seeing, and even more importantly, what I was feeling at that moment in time, science and technology had no answers for. Literally no answers, because there I was and there you are, there you were, the earth, dynamic, overwhelming, and I felt that the world had just too much purpose, too much logic, it was just too beautiful to have all happened by accident. There has to be somebody bigger than you and bigger than me, and I mean this in a spiritual sense, not a religious sense. There has to be  a creator in the universe who stands above the religions that we ourselves create to go in our lives.
