The funeral of the Bogdanoff brothers, authors of "God and science", celebrated this Monday

A mass in homage to the Bogdanoff brothers, Igor and Grichka who died six days apart, will be celebrated this Monday at 15 p.m. in the Madeleine church in Paris. According to their agent, the famous twins who had published in 1991 a book entitled "God and science", "were inhabited by the certainty that God exists".

Igor Bogdanoff died on Monday January 3 at the age of 72, less than a week after his brother Grichka, who died on December 28.

The twins who were television stars of the 80s for having launched the first science fiction show in France, on TF1, both were swept away by the Covid.

A mass in their homage will be celebrated this Monday at 15 p.m. in the Church of the Madeleine in Paris.

"Their burial will take place in strict privacy," said the short text sent to AFP by the agent of the twins.

According to Amélie de Bourbon-Parme, ex-wife of Igor Bogdanoff, "they fell ill a few days before their hospitalization on December 15".

The ex-wife of Igor Bogdanoff, with whom she had two children, confirmed that the two brothers were not vaccinated.

“They didn't make it a political subject. They weren't evangelizing anybody. It was a personal decision linked to their phobia of doctors and drugs. There is a link with the subject of death which was taboo for them and which fascinated them. They didn't want to look at death and didn't want any connection with it, preferring to forget about it, ”she explained.

“They were fascinated by science and discoveries. We are never close to a contradiction… ”, estimated Ms. de Bourbon-Parme.

Scientists who believed in the existence of God

The two brothers were certainly fascinated by science, but it would seem that they were also fascinated by God, as evidenced by the publication in 1991 of the book "God and science" (ed. Grasset), written with academician Jean Guitton. They also contributed to the writing of the book by Michel-Yves Bolloré and Olivier Bonnassies, "God, science, evidence" published in October 2021.

According to the words of their agent, Damien Nougarède, reported by RCF, the twins “were inhabited by the certainty that God exists”.

"They constantly quoted this phrase from Einstein: 'All those who are seriously involved in science will come to understand that a Spirit manifests itself in the laws of the universe, a Spirit immensely superior to man manifests itself in them. laws of the universe '. "
