NASA and Wernher von Braun

It seemed fitting to post this on the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing. A few years ago, I posted a quote from Dr. Wernher von Braun in a forum about God. An atheist disparaged his remarks by calling him a Nazi. Aside from the obvious genetic and ad hominem fallacies, this attack was illustrated the disinformation that has been carried out by secularists for many years about him.

Dr. Wernher von Braun was instrumental at NASA and in the Apollo program. He was a Christian and a creationist, but secularists are attacking him again.

This rocket scientist worked under duress for the Nazis, desiring only the peaceful exploration of space. He and his team sought out the Americans after the war and willingly surrendered to them. Eventually, he became an important and respected figure at NASA and worked on the Apollo program. At that time, he became a Christian and a creationist, rejecting the one-sided teaching of evolution in schools.

Naturally, atheists and evolutionists seek to put him in a bad light, even using works of fiction in their portrayal. That is akin to the way some owlhoots use Inherit the Wind as a documentary of the 1925 Scopes "Monkey" Trial. The article featured below also has a link to his biography (or you can use duplicate), which is also quite interesting.
Revisionist historians who weren’t with this man keep trying to disparage his past. We set the record straight.

The 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing takes place this month, and numerous celebrations are taking place around the country. The mission control center at Johnson Space Center in Houston has been refurbished like new, space museums are hosting week-long special events, and a new CNN documentary features long-lost Apollo memorabilia. Unfortunately, in spite of the spirit of happiness for one of the country’s finest moments, certain journalists who feel obsessed to cast America in a bad light are digging for dirt. A particularly heinous rumor has arisen again.
