Some random comments on reddit about "There's no god!" [USSR, 1960's] Happy Cosmonautics Day!
- The first time I read it as "God, no!", as in "oh shit!". It kinda looks like his space ship is taking off and he should be inside rather than tethered to it. Any translation for the text in the corner? Too small for me to read on my phone, and my Russian is nyet dobry.
- Text in the corner is just, eh, ???????? ??????, dunno the correct english term, wiki says 'edition notice'. Basically, who's the artist, where and when the poster was printed etc.
- That makes sense. I was hoping there would be a little background or something though.
- You're right, there is another little slogan in the corner. Probably it's the title of the series of similar posters. It states "??? ???? ???? ??????", i.e. "The road is broad without god".
- Nice, you even made it rhyme!
- It's in rhyme in Russian, I just tried my best.
- Is there any significance to the hyphen at the start? Would the meaning change much without it? I read it as something like '...'.
- It just means it's a quote. - said Ilitarist. - Russian grammar tradition shows speech this way, not just with "quotes". so i's what astronaut is saying.

- This is because the Russian Government uses the hugely popular Orthodox Church to gain legitimacy and control the people. They should ask how this went for France from about 1750 onwards. Read more comments
