Star Wars: On the Wrong Side of History & Science
Wed 6 Nov 2019

Star Wars is set in a wonderfully imaginative universe that features a profusion of cool planets, cooler alien life forms, and the coolest space ships. But that universe, with Tatooine, Dagobah, Naboo, Jakku, Endor, and all their fantastic creatures and “people” is a well-worn idea, and an idea whose time has passed. This presentation will argue that science and history strongly suggest that the universe seen in Star Wars — universe full of intelligent, technologically advanced extraterrestrial life; that is, full of Space Aliens — is simply not plausible. We’ll see you at Monnik Beer Co., 1036 E Burnett Ave, Louisville KY 40217 at 7pm in the Upper Room.
