Know The Answer?
Who am I: I lived in tents. I chose to live on the plain of Jordan. I had flocks and herds. My family and I escaped the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.

Herbert W. Armstrong founded the Worldwide Church of God in the late 1930s, as well as Ambassador College in 1946, and was an early pioneer of radio and tele-evangelism, originally taking to the airwaves in the 1930s from Eugene, Oregon.

QUESTION - PLAIN TRUTH: What is the major contribution that the Apollo program has made to the world? ANSWER - FLETCHER: You have to divide the contribution into two parts: One is the technology and the other is the spiritual. On the technology, I think NASA has developed and proven the kind of technology that is necessary to make use of space. We can really inhabit space. We can take advantage of the near space for uses on earth, like communications, weather and remote sensing satellites; plus all-of the spin-offs that go with that. When people say we're in the space-age technology, they mean that the automobile industry, the consumer (even razor blades use space-age technology), and the computer industry are using the same technology. The spiritual aspect is sometimes forgotten, and it's funny how quickly people forget. But when man first landed on the moon, he had confidence in himself, confidence in man's ability. When he landed there and stepped out on the moon, he thought, "Mankind really is going to amount to something." I don't know how to describe it any more than that.
