UFOs: The Space-Age Mythology

October 9–11, 2009

A CSI Workshop

For over 60 years the interpretation of “Things” in the sky has led to mythology about “Aliens” and their “Spacecraft.” These myths are fused with images from science fiction and enhanced by spiritual mysticism. Anomalous events in the sky are enlarged by anecdotal stories and conspiracy theories of “Space Gods” coming to earth for either salvation or destruction. Can “Lights in the Sky” really save us from the modern world? This workshop will consider these and other questions about the role of science and skepticism in evaluating extraordinary claims.
