ASU sees 1950s cartoons, vampire TV shows and zombie tax laws as real keys to higher education
In keeping with their tradition of offering the most scientifically significant and thought provoking information, such as “burning questions” about Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Daffy Duck cartoons and tax laws regarding zombies, the so-called Center for Science and the Imagination at Arizona State University is presenting a program on Looney Tunes in Space.
In what must have been a gut-wrenchingly difficult choice, ASU CSI once again bypassed the long-standing offer* to have a multi-media presentation on the Billy Meier UFO case by American media representative Michael Horn, former NASA aerospace engineer Matthew Wieczkiewicz, and Kenneth Smith, the Director of Operations at Orbital Launch System Group (Ret), both aerospace professionals who have decades of experience working in the US space program.
ASU previously made it clear that Horn’s award-winning film, And Did They Listen?, would not be shown at the university, without as much as one word of specific criticism regarding the film’s content, factual accuracy, etc.
It must be heartening for students, parents and supporters alike for ASU to boldly go where no man has gone before, to find the most relevant, cutting edge, scientific information to prepare its students for life in the…real world.
The Monster that Money Creates
In case anyone’s unclear about the monetary motive for places like ASU to cheerfully dumb down their students with cute, trendy and utterly irrelevant mind rot, perhaps this additional information on how the university profits will clarify it. Yes, you read that correctly, this time it’s about…Frankenstein.
A couple of quotes:
“Researchers at Arizona State University have received a four-year, $3 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF)”
“’From ‘Star Trek’ to the ever-expanding Lego universe, we’ve come to expect our most exciting stories to unfold across novels, video games, the silver screen and a host of other media. This project asks if we can use that phenomenon — which we call ‘transmedia storytelling’ — to deepen public engagement on crucial questions at the intersection of science and society,’ says Ed Finn, director of the Center for Science and the Imagination (CSI) and the lead investigator on the project.”
The irony of the “celebration” being held in…Switzerland will not be lost on most of us here.
Be afraid, be very afraid…
*Responses to offers to ASU CSI:

Thank you for your interest in the Center for Science and the Imagination, and sorry that I was out of the office when you called last week.
We have already scheduled all of our programming for the semester but will contact you if there is an opening at a later date.

Thank you again for your interest in the Center for Science and the Imagination. At this point, we are unable to extend an invitation to your group. While I believe this closes the matter, please direct any future inquiries to me, not other members of the Center for Science and the Imagination team.
