In July of 1969, I was 16 years old and was pretty excited by the prospect that the US would shortly land a man on the moon.
However, I remember, vividly and older brother at the time confidently stating that man would never walk on the moon, quoting Psalms 115 - "As for the heavens, they belong to Jehovah. But the earth he has given to the sons of man." A few weeks later of course he was proved wrong.
I wonder how many other witnesses at the time though that God would bring the big A before he let man walk on the moon.
