  typing from memory, I tought that this was not Gagarin, but Gherman Titov. I has thought that this appeared in his book "x thousands kms around the Earth", which as a result as banned by the apartheid SA Govt. for two decades.

     But I also remember that many years ago, someone on this email group corrected me. He told us that it was in fact in a speech Titov gave in Chicago. It was a remark he made ex tempora in answer to a queston from a journalist.

   Please note that as my memory can telescope events, garble events, mix up events, this email should _not_ become the source of yet another internet urban legend! It should ONLY be used to cross-check other claims, or search the archives of this email discussion forum.

warm regards from the southern spring,

Does anybody have a definitive source for the Gagarin quote that while in space he did not see god?

A friend is doing a paper on anthropology and the space age and has found six different versions of this.  He's looking for something firm.
