1,000 years from now, it would be wrong to conclude Americans were already traveling to galaxies back in the 1980s. But you will have to give credit that they imagined it pretty well. So well that when inter-galactic travel finally became possible, it looked like is shown in the Star Wars. I think the ancient Hindu epics have to be seen in the same light. They are amazing. I remember reading about mountains of diamonds in one of the Hindu stories as a child. Recently I learned that they actually exist! Jupiter has mountains of diamonds, the mountains are larger than planet Earth. Go figure.
Let the man feel his pride. I see no harm in that. Americans feel plenty proud of Star Wars.
