Cosmic Religion is an explanation of the origin, evolution, and eventual fate of the universe, from a religious perspective . Nikolai Fyodorov’s beliefs in a cosmic religion centred on life off Earth helped inspire some of the Soviet Union’s most brilliant engineers. According to Fyodorov’s poverty came by religious choice rather than material necessity. He was the illegitimate child of Prince Pavel Gagarin, and spent his early childhood on the family’s country estate, until the sudden death of both his father and grandfather, Prince Ivan Gagarin. Fyodorov lived an ascetic lifestyle – sustained only by bread, tea and water but he inhabited an exhilarating intellectual milieu. Do you feel like most of the great scientists had there own universal religious believes ?
