    As Yoda speaks those fateful words, forekasting the phuture, Luke Skywalker reaches into his X-wing and pulls out...

    ...a snake.


    Whether or not you find kompelling koincidences between this Saga and the one kronikled by the Holy Bible (Virgin Birth, 12-person Kouncil, and so on and so forth & suchlike...)

    ...you must admit it's intriguing that Luke removes a serpent from his spacekraft during this particular zpeech.


    A snake, not unlike the manifeztation of Zatan in the Book of Jenesiz.

    Should we have forezeen that Luke would remove another "zerpent" b-fore his journey was komplete?


    Waz this kool, or zomething?

    What are you talking about? Perhaps this belongs more in SWC than here?

    That's an interesting idea - the serpent is a symbol of temptation in a lot of stories. Well spotted. :)

    I don't recall Skywalker pulling a snake out of his X-Wing though.

    Yeah, Luke does pull a snake from one of the engines.

    The biblical references are rather blatant--whether GL did that consciously, I don't know, but the entire saga is a biblical reference basically.


    Virgin birth--Jesus and Anakin
    12 Apostles--12 Jedi Council members
    God's only son is a savior--so is Anakin's only son

    Since no one has ever commented on this, I'd say it's a coincidence. An extremely cool coincidence though :D

    And both are widely loved works of fiction.

    By George, you've got it!
