@raurosfall We have to capitalize 'god' because Gagarin only searched the heavens; there could be plenty of minor deities scurrying around the oceans, woodland glades, swamps, and let's not forget the chthonic deities... or the Old Ones. CHTHULHU!!!!!

@Darin Many members of the former CP in the Soviet Union were also 'believers'--I shard a Pepsi with the last Soviet ambassador to the UN, a believer and a commie; also, all clergy in PR China have to belong to the CP. For that matter, entrepreneurs are now allowed to join the CP in China, so go figure. In most languages the term for 'heaven' is also 'sky' (Russian небо 'njebuh' means both sky and heaven; ditto for Chinese 天 tian and Mongolian тэнгэр tenger and Tibetan གནམ gnam [pronounced 'nam']); this is because Indo-European ideology not only spread via language/conquest over Europe and India, but also affected Central and East Asian civilizations.

Yuri Gagarin was a cosmonaut and a member of the Russian Orthodox Church. How anyone can reconcile the too is beyond me. There is no proof or source that Yuri Gagarin actually said this.

I haven't read the bible in 30 years. I'm curious, why do people believe that the heavens are up?

The statement is apocryphal. The record doesn't list this line. Rather, it was probably said by Khrushchev.
